Iterate...  

Iterate..., one of Olin’s entrepreneurship elective courses, provides students with the resources to explore the entrepreneurial potential of their ideas and their ability to create value “in the wild.” Whether a student or team enters with a fully-formed business concept, a compelling project from any other class, a side project driven by personal passion or even just a healthy dose of curiosity, Iterate... offers students an explicit and rigorous structure to test and validate their ideas. The course proceeds as a series of two-week experiments, during which students test a different question, hypothesis or assumption about their idea by getting in front of real people. Outside resources, mentors and advisors are engaged based upon the specific needs of each project. Consistent with both its name and its intention, Iterate….may be taken for full credit as many times as needed or desired.
