Instructors: Joost Paul Bonsen, Edward Stuart Boyden, Joseph JACOBSON
Lecture: R 2-4p (E15-341)
Revolutionary Ventures is about envisioning and building ideas and organizations to accelerate engineering revolutions. We focus on emerging technology domains, such as neurotechnology, imaging, cryotechnology, gerontechnology, and bio-and-nano fabrication. We draw upon historical examples as well as live case studies of existing or emerging organizations, including labs, institutes, startups, and companies. G oals range from accelerating basic science to developing transformative products or therapeutics. Each class is devoted to a specific area, often with invited speakers, exploring issues from the deeply technical through the strategic. Individually or in small groups, students prototype new ventures aimed at inventing and deploying revolutionary technologies.
