Über diesen Kurs

This course will allow you to identify and evaluate opportunities for creating a tech business, and to better understand its principal issues on a human, technical, commercial, environmental and financial level. As such, you will obtain solid foundations either for building your own tech business, or for joining one. Deciding to create or to join a tech business in these early years is an out-of-the-ordinary adventure, and it certainly won’t be straightforward: you need to be ready to accept that not all "good" ideas will lead to success, and that only a very small number of projects lead to great success. You must learn to overhaul your relationship with failure, which is a valuable source of experience and should be managed according to the logic of “acceptable loss”: the entrepreneur loves uncertainty, not excessive risk. The creation of tech businesses gives you a genuine opportunity to change the world, but requires you to adopt a particular state of mind and to be able to acquire knowledge, know-how and interpersonal skills. You will have the chance to work alongside passionate and exciting people from a whole multitude of backgrounds. From a technological point of view, these women and men have constructed numerous companies of a global scale. The development trajectory of a tech business is full of mishaps which require you to be both agile and greatly prepared to build on a strong idea, choose your market, develop your proposal, assemble a team worthy of the task in hand, and finding financing. The course is made up of methodological sessions as well as first-hand accounts from entrepreneurs and people who have succeeded in creating tech businesses themselves. You will thus be able to get to know the essential dilemmas with which high-tech business creators are confronted with, beginning with the initial decision to set up your very own structure, which itself represents a significant life decision. You will also see that the creation of a tech business is much more a collective adventure than an individual one. In the English version, all of the reading content, quizzes and assesments will be in English, whilst the videos will have French audio and English subtitles....

Good course touching many aspects, but with little depth (time does not allow for more). I consider it a good initial awareness course for these matters, but more in-depth training should be followed afterwards

It would have been better to be in English!

This course could be improved under several aspects.

1. Some of the contents are more "academical" than "practical", making the course not particularly adapted for aspiring entrepreneurs.

2. The assignments are poor and there is no interaction with the teachers whatsoever even if you have paid for obtaining a certification for the course.

3. Despite the description, the course is almost entirely in French language with only English subtitles.

4. There are several other courses about creating and developing startups that are better than this one, with more practical and direct application (and mostly for free!).

Great course, great teachers and a lot of good content. Clearly defines the challenges in creating a technological start up and how to overcome them. Just would have focused the quizzes a bit more on theoretical content, involving some mathematics, economics or accounting for example.

Very interesting speakers with extremely different personalities, styles, backgrounds! Assignment way too intense and not enough related to course materials. Felt like doing free work for a really existing company without clearly defined learning experience /advantage for us. However enjoyed and appreciated the course and will certainly profit from it in the future.
