This is a 4-week course on how to make an idea into reality. This year TiE Silicon Valley will partner with San Jose State University to bring you a unique program that will blend the theoretical with the practical – will bring together the wannapreneurs with successful entrepreneurs and will allow you to take an idea from concept to execution.

The course will be jointly offered as a standard Summer Course offering by San Jose State University for students interested on taking it for credit. This class meets each day from 10am-3pm. The course will also provide additional invited lectures, entrepreneurial mentoring sessions and networking opportunities. Mentoring sessions will be specifically for helping student teams polish their ideas into real startups. Finally, at the conclusion of this course, you will be provided an opportunity to present your startup plans to a panel of real investors.
