The Next Step: Online Classroom


The Next Step online classroom teaches the process of taking an idea and turning it into an operational startup.  These lectures are based on the entrepreneurship education within Fledge, the conscious company accelerator and the Entrepreneurship class taught to the MBA candidates at Presidio Graduate School.

This material is based on The Next Step series of books, but not identical in content, and quite different in form and style.  It is recommended that the books be read along side watching the lectures.
