Module - Ventures culture and idea formation


Under the umbrella of the Entrenauts project, this module guides young graduate students to the creation of new projects and ventures. The module is designed around my personal experience as PhD student and as Software Engineer at one of the Fortune's best companies to work for, for the past years.

Course structure

Three parts characterize the module's content:

Part 1 - Approaching Graduation
In this section participants will be given insights to start creating their personal network inside and outside the graduate school. We will explore ways to carry on projects started during the graduate studies and bring them to the outside world and companies. We will also talk about the importance of participating in social and business events to build professional connections with peers and entrepreneurs.

Part 2 - Culture and its effects
This section will provide examples regarding companies and ventures culture and the impacts on productivity. Participants will learn more about the particular aspects of the internal company culture that made companies like Google and Ideo unique places. In particular we will talk about:

  • Google's 20% project and employees time allocation.
  • Ideo's brainstorming sessions.
  •  Work environment aspects with impact on productivity and creativity.

Part 3 - Lab
Laboratory section will provide students with the opportunity to discuss and develop their own case of study with the intent of creating the optimal cultural and productive environment for the proposed projects. Participants will select a few projects from the proposed one and work in teams to design a culturally creative environment that stimulates innovation and new ideas.
