During the technology-based entrepreneurship course I have learnt a lot. Both regarding the theoretical material with the lecture notes but also through the course book Technology Entrepreneurship has been very given. I have understood the difference between an entrepreneur and a technology entrepreneur and what advantages and difficulties that they have depending on previous knowledge base.
Moreover, the guest lecturers have been very enhancing to the course content. Receiving external knowledge and experience has been great for the understanding of entrepreneurship and what it actually means to run a start-up. I had a clue about it before but I definitively know more about it know.
If I should criticize some part of the course, I would have liked more theory and focus upon concept regarding entrepreneurship and running a start-up. At times I thought there were too many guest lecturer and too little focus upon knowledge. I would have liked more lectures based on the book and in deep knowledge about theory and concept. The way the course is built now, I had my own drive in reading the book and taking on new theory.
One thing that has been very given is the events that I have been participating at. The first one was the lecture at House of Innovation and Epicentre. It was amazing to see that they have chips in their hands that helps them open the doors and so fourth. The lecture was very giving and makes you really look forward to the future of technology. The same week I went back for the Bootstrapping your Start-up event, which I blogged about on Intropreneur. I had never heard about the concept before so that made it specially interesting, Also, the people talking at the event had real life experience of bootstrapping which made it very tangible and knowledge-enhancing. This Monday I visited Pirate Summit Stockholm and their pitch competition. What was very interesting about that was that it was very similar to the pitches made in class and I must say that you guys keeps a high level!
Thanks for this course, it have been very given! Especially, since I know have at least four new friends the group work, one frim India, one from China, one from Italy and one from Greece, its been a pleasure getting to know you all!
