One of the most frustrating things about being an entrepreneur is...no one really tells you how to do it! Whether you're building a side hustle, a creative passion project, a non-profit or the next tech giant, the secret codes feel locked up somewhere at MIT or Google. You're either clicking around a bunch of links online, searching out some books at the library, asking friends of friends, or dropping a ton of cash (and time!) to go get an MBA. Like all of the best things in life, there's no rule book.
Serial founders and professors Justin Wolske and Jason D'Mello at Caseworx have built one. We looked at how they teach entrepreneurship at elite university programs and top-tier accelerators. We didn't find that many textbooks or lectures. Instead, we found Harvard case studies, interviews with a great entrepreneurs, collaboration and teamwork. We found that learning through story is the best way to learn really hard things like becoming an entrepreneur. We've literally been doing it for hundreds of years.
So, we took what we saw, and improved on it to build our how-to guide to become a founder. Street Fighting Entrepreneurship is an 8-part scenario-based curriculum designed to give you experience with the biggest challenges that founders face, from idea to exit. You'll watch Hollywood-level scenes of founders in crisis. You'll make real decisions. You'll build teams with fellow entrepreneurs around the world. You'll get access to experienced founders, investors and professors to help build your venture. And you'll do it on a platform designed to teach entrepreneurship, leadership and other really valuable skills.
Street Fighting Entrepreneurship will cover:
Our curriculum is already up and running in major universities and corporations. But we want to build a space for YOU, the individual learner. This crowdfund will help build out the platform for learners like you, giving you all the support and community you'd have if you were working from a university.
The skills you build as an entrepreneur are the most valuable asset you ever have. It's often too hard to get access to resources to help you build them. Caseworx has changed that. Join us, and train like you're actually going to do something with it.
