Teaching at Olin College next year

College photo 10842 130x0I’m excited to tell you that I just accepted a position as Visiting Lecturer at Olin College for Spring 2013! Actually the full name is Olin College of Engineering.

Olin is a small engineering college, actually in the top ten of engineering colleges according to US News’ Rankings. Olin is a very young college: it just celebrated its 10th year! 

I’ll be teaching Entrepreneurship in a course called “The Tech Startup” (at least I think that will be the name of the course.) 

As you might know, I was teaching at Brandeis University over the last three years. The course I taught at Brandeis  was more computer science oriented, aimed at getting the students the experience and helping them gain the skills to build software products in a way that looks like the real world.

At Olin the focus will be on the broader topic of how engineers should think about startups, how to come up with products that have a chance at selling, making sure they match what customers want and are willing to pay for. I

am still nailing down the details of the curriculum but it’s very exciting to have this opportunity and I am totally psyched about it!
