About this course

Universities, government labs, and private companies invest billions of dollars in the research and development of breakthrough technologies that have the potential to transform industries and lives — but very few of these technologies ever leave the lab. Those that do often fail to find compelling market applications. So what determines success? How does an invention become an enduring innovation?

In this introductory course, developed in collaboration with the Laboratory for Innovation Science at Harvard and the University of California San Diego, you’ll explore how entrepreneurs match promising technology with customer needs to launch successful new businesses. Using real-world examples, you’ll apply critical thinking to commercialize technologies, and you’ll learn about the venture creation process from founders, funders, and industry experts.

Join us to learn a systematic process for technology commercialization to bring cutting-edge innovations out of the lab and into the world.

What you’ll learn

  • A systematic approach to technology entrepreneurship
  • How to generate new use scenarios by matching customer needs with promising technology seeds
  • How to align business and operating models
  • How to evaluate a technology for readiness and market fit
  • How to position opportunities to secure funding

Syllabus

  • Section 1: Problem Solving and Systematic Innovation
  • Section 2: Matching Needs and Seeds
  • Section 3: Generating Business and Operating Models
  • Section 4: Determining Readiness and Market Fit
  • Section 5: Financing Your Venture

What about customs?

We are not responsible for any custom fees once the items have shipped. By purchasing our products, you consent that one or more packages may be shipped to you and may get custom fees when they arrive to your country.

Do you provide tracking information?

Yes, you will receive an email once your order ships that contains your tracking information. If you haven’t received tracking info within 5 days, please contact us.

My tracking says "no information available at the moment".

For some shipping companies, it takes 2-5 business days for the tracking information to update on the system. If your order was placed more than 5 business days ago and there is still no information on your tracking number, please contact us.

Will my items be sent in one package?

For logistical reasons, items in the same purchase will sometimes be sent in separate packages, even if you have specified combined shipping.

If you have any other questions, please contact us and we will do our best to help you out.
