Diversity is the key.

At the first class on 1/9 Serdar tell me this thought when I was about to form a team with some friends from Asia. Then I join Dreamgineering which is the best group in the class! Our group members are from five different countries: Sweden, Spain, Taiwan, United State and Germany. It’s great to work and discuss with them, and I learned a lot from each of them. Because of the different background, we can always come up with something interesting and creative by brainstorming.

You are not selling. You want them to buy!

It’s important to find a pain, especially the pain, discomfort, or dissatisfaction that you have, and solve it. Not to think about “selling, selling, selling” all day. So don’t focus too much on how to make money and focus instead more on solving their needs and pains.

Networking!

We can’t put too much emphasis on the importance of networking. Personal social network is very valuable to people, especially for entrepreneurs. Sometimes it can do things that money can’t. More, it’s skillful to help others get connection, just like last time what Serdar did to let two acquaintances get connected in the Fika. I thinks it’s goof that this course encourage us to meet other people.

The world is big, go explore!

We were encouraged to attend startup activities in Stockholm For these few months, I have been to 4 activities :

1. ”Entrepreneurship on Campus” held by Stockholm Innovation & Growth (STING)

2. Cultue Festival about startup in Vaxholm – NyföretagarCentrum.

3. Stockholm Startup Weekend Bootcamp

4. Entrepreneur Creation in Royal Coin Cabinet

I met different awesome people, learn to brand new thoughts and listen to many different stories. I didn’t notice that the world is such a big and interesting full with amazing people and beautiful things.

And the last thing I want to mention is that the student-teacher interactions in Sweden is very friendly. That really surprises me. As an international student from Taiwan, I know it’s not easy for students and teacher to have such intimate and good interactions. But in this course, we have a teacher who ask us to have coffee or lunch together, answer our questions patiently after and during class, and voluntarily offer time four discussion. Thank you Serdar, a friend-like teacher!

5 Thoughts on “Most precious things I learned!

    I agree with you that the student-teacher interaction was very good in this course, but it is far away the same in other courses here at KTH or in Sweden. This was actually the first time where the lecturer remembered my name haha 🙂

  2. I agree with Leon, the student-teacher interaction is not like this in most other courses at KTH. It feels like high-school all over (and I mean it as a good thing!)

      Nice summary! I think you mentioned all the important lessons we should learn in the course! Especially the “networking” is the main aspect I take away after the course but anyway I agree with everything you have written here! Thank you for that.

    Very nice post Danny, I couldn’t agree more on the content. Serdar made a great job of showing the importance of networking, especially by interacting with us himself.

    I do agree with the event-parapgraph! First time in my life that I’ve been to this many entrepreneur-events in such a short amount of time in my life! I rarely go to open-events, but now I think they are quite interesting as you immerse in something you never thought much about before, and it really opens your eyes and you meet new people too. So thanks Serdar for “making” us go to these 🙂
