In a process that has been going on for more than 60 years at MIT, this week a group of students came together to practice entrepreneurship at a breakneck pace designed to mimic the steep learning curve needed to start a business.

MIT’s 15.390 (New Ventures) course has been held annually since 1961 – a time when entrepreneurship education was just an obscure idea. Indeed, many people believe that New Enterprises is the nation’s oldest entrepreneurship course, and its mark on the Institute and the greater Boston area has been profound.

Over the course of a semester, the project-based class challenges students to form teams, pursue business plans, and respond to feedback given during mock board meetings.

“The goal of the course is to prepare students for one of two things: maybe they want to pursue a startup and now they have a plan to put into practice, or maybe they are going to take that process and drop it off at another organization, whether as a researcher, an employee at a large corporation, or a non-profit,” says Paul Cheek, senior lecturer at the Sloan School of Management in MIT, which started teaching new businesses in 2020. “Whatever they do, they will go with entrepreneurship and skills.

The format is designed to create entrepreneurs, not businesses. Yet an impressive number of classroom projects have turned into successful businesses over the years. These companies then introduced impactful products to the world, became pillars of the local tech ecosystem, and pioneered new industries.

Bill Aulet, who has helped teach the course for the past 12 years as managing director of the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship, thinks New Enterprises exemplifies MIT’s culture of ensuring that classroom work has an impact on the world.

“When MIT started, it was a home for immigrants and children of immigrants who were part of the Industrial Revolution, so we still do things differently,” says Aulet, who is also a professor of practice at Sloan. MIT School of Management. “We have a deep culture of entrepreneurship. It’s been here for a long time, and when people say, “You’re doing a good job,” you have to say, “It was here before I came, and it will be here long after I’m gone.

A rich history

MIT was very different in 1961 than it is today. But a trend towards the commercialization of scientific research was evident after a world war in which physicists had played a decisive role, and a number of companies had managed to grow out of the huge wartime laboratories of MIT.

Richard Morse ’33, a lecturer in what was then called MIT’s School of Industrial Management, was among those who walked onto MIT’s bustling campus with a new idea in 1961. Morse had founded the National Research Corporation (NRC), best known for inventing frozen orange juice. concentrate and create the Minute Maid Corporation. He wanted to formalize the process of commercializing new technologies for students. New Enterprises was born.

Morse taught the class, which was limited to 15 students, with the help of outside professionals and contractors rather than professors. Over the years, the course has evolved to meet changing conditions and growing demand in the same way a business might.

After Morse, he was taught by Russell Olive ’52 and then Barbara Bund, who introduced entrepreneurial marketing to students. Professors Eric von Hippel ’68 and Ed Roberts taught for an interim period to accommodate the growing number of students applying. Over the next few decades, 20% of the class’s seats were reserved for engineering students, reflecting MIT’s highly interdisciplinary approach to entrepreneurship.

As students put what they had learned into practice, new companies began to play a formative role in the industries for which MIT and Cambridge are well known today. Among the first students of the course was Robert Swanson, who would go on to found Genentech, which developed synthetic insulin. The company is also widely credited with founding the biotechnology industry.

In the 1980s, Jon Hirschtick, who advanced computer-aided design (CAD) by founding companies such as SoldWorks and OnShape, wrote the business plan for his first company in New Ventures. Other successful entrepreneurs, including Aulet, who took the course as a student in 1993, credit Nouvelles Entreprises for teaching them the ropes of entrepreneurship.

More recently, the start-up of several anchor companies in the Boston area can be traced back to new ventures.

“I basically took New Enterprises twice,” says Brian Halligan MBA ’05, who co-founded Hubspot, the Cambridge-based marketing software giant, with Darmesh Shah SM ’06. “The first time, I worked on another idea. The following semester, Dharmesh followed him and we accompanied Hubspot throughout the course. I think it’s the best course I’ve ever taken.

Nowadays, the course begins by asking students to come up with business ideas. Instructors then run sessions around building teams, discovering and interviewing clients, and developing a business plan. Students have two mock board meetings throughout the semester, where experts give feedback on their plan and try to identify gaps they need to fill in their business.

The class is a melting pot of undergraduates, masters students, doctoral candidates and mid-career Sloan Scholars, as well as students from Harvard University and Wellesley College.

“It’s a fun and entertaining class,” says Cheek, who notes that students are graded on how well they apply the entrepreneurial concepts they are taught and how well they respond to feedback. “You look around the room and people are laughing and enjoying the process. It’s not just about “doing the work and going to class”. They also embrace the entrepreneurial spirit.

Continuing a Legacy

New Enterprises is designed to be the beginning of students’ entrepreneurial journey. Instructors often direct students to other entrepreneurial support offerings on campus when the semester is over, such as industry-specific entrepreneurship courses at Sloan or programs like the MIT Sandbox Fund, Legatum Center, and the Venture Mentoring Service.

No one really has a complete list of all the companies that have come out of new ventures, but Aulet says he’s often contacted by alumni who cite the course as a launching point for their business. Over the past few weeks, this has included the founding teams of Klarity and Lightmatter, who just raised an additional $98 million in capital to fund their continued growth.

“It’s incredibly gratifying to hear these entrepreneurs talk about their successes in making a positive impact on the world,” says Aulet.

Cheek says the fact that the course is now over 60 years old underscores the interdependence between MIT’s founding philosophy and the spirit of entrepreneurship.

“It’s so closely tied to MIT’s motto, ‘mens and mans’ [“mind and hand” in Latin]says Cheek. “Entrepreneurship is not just understanding, it is going through a process and practicing. This process has evolved over time. This class has iterated so many times to improve and increase the value of entrepreneurship education, and it’s something that definitely won’t stop.

India, March 2, 2022: To give teenagers an early glimpse into future careers, Clever Harvey has collaborated with Multiply Ventures to launch a new industry-certified course, “JuniorMBA Entrepreneurship”, specifically for secondary school students (Classes VIII to XII).

The 15-day program aims to provide students with hands-on exposure to what startup founders do while learning how to create Shark Tank-style business presentations. Working in groups of two or three, students take a “behind the scenes” tour of one of the most challenging functions of business: entrepreneurship, guided by a Clever Harvey facilitator. By learning to develop business strategies with step-by-step guidance, students develop a solid foundation in business acumen and critical thinking.

Speaking at the launch of the new programme, Sriram Subramanian, co-founder of Clever Harvey, said: “With the introduction of the new education policy, the entrepreneurship and India’s burgeoning start-up culture makes it important for students to understand what goes into being an entrepreneur.The newly launched program teaches students how to start a business while reflecting on concepts such as value proposition, business models, revenue streams, business costs and scaling challenges. They then apply these concepts to present their own business plans. We are delighted to welcome Multiply Ventures as a as a partner in creating this new category of experiential career discovery. A team of former founders who created and scaled brands like Myntra, Flipkart and PayTm now serve as inve writers. Their contributions are invaluable for aspiring entrepreneurs – teenagers or adults.

“You would think that an entrepreneurship program is for those who want to start businesses. But did you know that 65% of the professions that will exist in 2030 have not yet been invented? So how do you prepare the younger generation for this world? There is a distinct need for an entrepreneurial skill set, regardless of career choice in today’s ever-changing business environment. Critical thinking, influencing skills and business acumen are key skills needed to be successful in any career they choose to pursue,” he added.

Commenting on the launch, Raveen Sastry, Founder of Multiply Ventures, said, “We are delighted to have partnered with Clever Harvey to teach entrepreneurial skills at the secondary level. Students will benefit from building a broader problem-solving mindset to understand people’s needs and develop solutions. Additionally, it will be interesting to see how students develop ideas and develop solutions to turn them into viable and scalable business plans. We are excited to see teen start-ups emerging from this program. »

Drew University business students develop startup ideas in entrepreneurship class

Fall 2021 projects inspire students to think big

January 2022 – Eleven students from Drew University’s entrepreneurship class spent the fall 2021 semester developing a startup idea and accompanying pitch deck.

To illuminate the many facets of their business ideas, students learned key start-up concepts such as product-market fit, Level 5 leadership, total addressable market, go-to-market strategies, and the Lean Canvas. . They also read Peter Thiel’s bestseller, Zero to Oneand covered case studies on Tesla, Lululemon Athletica, Airbnb, Etsy, Uber, Rent the Runway and WeWork.

Some students created a fourth sector business — “for-profit” businesses that rely on the private sector to solve public sector problems. Others have been inspired by their personal experiences in the United States and abroad.

Here are some startup ideas:

Nicolas D’Eufemia C’22

Major: Media & Communications

Project: Finding a Guide

Nick is an avid angler who has been on dozens of guided fishing trips around the world. He developed a business concept, Find a guidewith a website and a mobile app. Find a guide connects experienced anglers dedicated to the sport of fishing with anglers looking to venture into new geographic areas. When traveling to fish, anglers often don’t know where or when to go, what gear to use, or what has worked best for other anglers. Experienced local guides can help you. Find a guide also provides a way for experienced anglers to profit from their knowledge without having to build and promote entire businesses. As part of his market validation research, Nick contacted world renowned angler Patrick Sébile for consultation. It also took into account the rise in popularity of fishing during COVID-19, including a 10% increase in the number of female fishermen. A fourth sector, or for-profit enterprise, Find a guide encourage and support the capture and release practices as part of its corporate mission.

Talha Ahsan Siddiqui C’21, G’24

Major: Commerce

Project: e-Bkye Jadea JV – The mobility revolution for Pakistan and Indonesia

As someone who had first-hand experience of the noisy, stuffy, emission-filled roads of Karachi and Jakarta, Talha developed his business idea around green mobility. His company, e-Byke Jadea JV, is reportedly bringing affordable electric motorcycles to cities across Asia by first expanding into Pakistan and Indonesia. For his electric motorcycle, he chose Yadea JV, a recognized brand that currently has a 98% market share in China. Its go-to-market plan includes manufacturing the bikes locally in Pakistan and Indonesia to cut costs. E-byke’s extensive green mobility ecosystem would include bike rentals, battery charging and swapping stations, and a network of franchised dealerships. After developing the initial dealer network, Talha would expand e-Byke Jadea JV to other Asian markets.

Sungoh C’22 Park

Major: Commerce

Project: All About Style

Sungoh has developed a commercial concept around a mobile application, All About Style, a peer-to-peer community network that connects hairdressers and clients with features that go way beyond booking hairdresser appointments. The app was inspired, in part, by the experience of one of Sungoh’s friends who had trouble explaining how he wanted his hair cut to a stylist. In his speech to the class, Sungoh mentioned that KaKao Hair Shop, a popular hair appointment app used in South Korea, is not available for small hair salons, which provides an opportunity for All About Style. Not only would All About Style showcasing trending hairstyles from around the world, it would maintain detailed stylist biographies so that consumers can easily find a qualified local stylist for the exact haircut they have in mind. The app would encourage community and dialogue among members. As part of its social mission, All About Style would provide free haircuts to underserved populations as well as free training for aspiring hairdressers.

Deyna N. Cubillos Rozo

Au Pair Program

Project: Mkt Easy

Deyna decided to tackle an important problem in Latin America, mainly the limited availability of resources for social projects that underserved populations desperately need. The organization of Deyna, easy market, would develop and manage a new crowdfunding platform to bypass traditional funding processes often mired in bureaucracy and corruption. Its peer-to-peer platform would connect donors with organizations seeking to improve social conditions in local Latin American communities by leveraging educational programs. From its home country of Colombia, Deyna’s organization would market the platform using local TV, radio and newspaper ads and try to attract interested parties. Once established in Colombia, easy market would move to Mexico and eventually the United States

Brianna Santiago C’22

Major: Psychology, Commerce

Project: Fly Kicks

Brianna spent the last summer working in a sneaker store answering customer questions. The frustration she witnessed when customers couldn’t properly describe the sneakers they were looking for inspired Brianna’s company, Flying kicks. A photo app designed to help consumers easily identify sneakers they may have seen around town, Flying kicks would determine the exact brand and model of sneakers from a photo. The app would locate the sneaker online for the user, provide price and available sizes by location. As part of its mission, Flying kicks would donate one pair of sneakers for every 100 pairs purchased on the app, and the company would also support the Finish Line Youth Foundation’s Special Olympics. Brianna is considering Flying kicks like having a customer service team to answer questions about sneakers and would like to eventually expand the app to other types of shoes including boots, heels and sandals.

Ahmad Hijawi (left) and his colleagues from CleanPalCo met with officials from the municipality of Ramallah in Palestine and then agreed to remove pollutants from the area for recycling and turning them into building materials.

When Al-Quds student Bard Ahmad Hijawi ’23 set out to find a way to solve the problems of industrial stone waste and discarded tires in his native Palestine, he had no idea he would end up also by creating useful household products and winning national entrepreneurship competitions. In the process. Hijawi credits much of his company’s success to the skills he developed while taking the OSUN Network Collaborative Course on Social Entrepreneurship in 2020, as well as the valuable feedback from his peers he received throughout. .

“The course helped me a lot in acquiring leadership and analytical skills, especially in finding solutions to the problems we wanted to solve,” says Hijawi, who co-founded CleanPalCo. Hijawi found that methodical research, experimentation, and consultation with classmates in different countries helped his team find a solution that was both viable and innovative. Ultimately, the course’s collaborative processes allowed the team to realize they could cut up discarded rubber tires and then combine them with waste stone and polluting water to produce household products. useful such as bricks, tiles and rubber flooring.

“We not only solved a pollution problem, but also produced something useful that could be used as safety padding in parks and playgrounds,” he says.

Eliza Edge, who earned a Bard MBA in Sustainability in 2020 and is one of several instructors at Bard College teaching social entrepreneurship, agrees that the global network structure and platform supporting the course has been invaluable. “Getting feedback and feedback from peers around the world can help others understand patterns that might already exist in other parts of the world,” she says. “Knowing that we don’t want to recreate, say, a food delivery app all over the world, our system allows us to share examples and insights from our own lives and worldviews that can be very helpful in getting off the beaten track. beaten.”

In its second year, the course connects over 100 students from countries around the world, including Bangladesh, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Taiwan and the United States, creating a brain of multicultural interactions that is not available in most classrooms.
