An entrepreneurship course for undergraduates at Georgia Tech.
COE2701 / CS2701 / MGT4803
Startup Lab is a semester-long, hands-on class for undergraduate students at Georgia Tech to learn how to launch a technology startup. We combine in-class lectures with out-of-class learning. You will discover a compelling business model by going out and interviewing people. You will need to commit 6 hours a week of time outside of the class time for this program to be successful.
First we'll teach you the basics about startups including creativity, teaming, building a minimal viable product, startup metrics, pivoting, intellectual property, pitching, and raising money.
Then we'll learn about customer discovery and go out into the field and interview potential customers. At least ten customer interviews are required each week so that you may start with a hypothesis and end with a product/service that others want.
The teaching team is made up of faculty and staff that have previously and/or currently are launching early stage startups.
