Description: The big idea. The breakthrough. Divine inspiration. It goes by many times. Think of it as the entrepreneurial holy grail, that epiphany that ultimately topples business models and disrupts entire industries. Think Netflix, Uber, Amazon, and Airbnb. Of course, those ideas don’t just pop up and take life. Instead, they stem from a mixture of blending, testing, failing, and re-calibrating. So where do you even start? Think dissatisfaction…with cost, features, scale, or delivery. In sum, ideas — and innovation — ultimately begins with seeking an alternative to the status quo. It takes wings when you find a like-minded community with the passion and technical know-how to take it to the next level…a community like MIT.

In this course, students will explore innovation through following: “the distinctions between, user and producer innovation; co-forming of need and the solution; fundamental business concepts such as sticky information and low-cost innovation niche; the role of the principal/agent problem in innovation; and the key pathways for diffusion of innovation.” The course is also treated as preparation for the MIT Global Entrepreneurship Bootcamp, where teams build and launch companies over a five day period.
