About the course

Today’s entrepreneurs, technologists, and business people face important challenges in a broad range of industries, from health and wellness to robotics and fintech. Although these problems require breakthrough inventions in technology and business models, the vast majority of inventions go nowhere, causing huge losses in talent and capital.

What is a breakthrough invention? How do you make or recognize one? How can you avoid costly mistakes and convert an initial insight into a world-changing breakthrough? In this course, we will address such questions by using case studies from a variety of industries and perspectives. We will identify problems whose solutions can create new systems, establish new processes, lead to breakthrough inventions, and enable new business models. We will learn how to recognize such high-value problems and convert them into scalable solutions. We will study advanced brainstorming methods, practice using tools for solving the “innovator’s dilemma,” and generate testable hypotheses. In addition, we will see how to avoid typical mistakes that doom to failure the innovation efforts of both startups and established companies. The course will culminate in an invention workshop in which students will practice their newly learned skills to solve real-life problems.
