From the site:
Become an entrepreneur or intrapraneur in straightforward, manageable steps based on Josh’s popular and highly experiential course at New York University. This seminar will give you the blueprint to start an operating business with little or no experience, creating a community of supportive people, including valuable members of your target field, vested in your success.
Unlike other entrepreneurship courses, this one does not require you to come in with a big idea—or any idea at all. Josh will show how generating ideas is a skill that can be learned and practiced, and that the idea of a lifetime can come once a month. You’ll build community around your idea and develop it into a viable business plan you can present to top people in your field or current company.
Following this course, students with no experience have launched successful businesses and projects in their firms. Read student comments on his course here, which starts with:“This is one of the greatest classes I have ever taken. It was engaging, thought provoking, challenging, and fun. Josh is an incredible teacher, mentor, and friend to everyone in the class who is passionate about the subject matter. If I could take this class all over again, I would”
