Don’t Freak OutThis class is different from any other you’ve taken at UT.That is a good thing.We will not study black letter law per se, ipso facto, res ipsa loquiter.We are here to:1) Peer into practitioner’s view of how technology startups get built2) Think about why businesses use technology3) Understand why business and life are so interconnected4) Learn from the wisdom & experience of others 5) Gain a basic practical understanding of business, finance, negotiation and intellectual property6) Find a meaningful path in life7) Have a good time (as mush as is possible in a classroom)Ok?
As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.
Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern
I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern
The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
