Who created the Starting Up course and how?
The idea was initiated by the student-run accelerator Kiuas, an active member in the startup community – they approached Aalto University and pitched the idea to other partners, who were quick to jump on board.
The course content creators consist of Aalto Ventures Program, Kiuas, Maki.vc and Reaktor employees. The source for the material is both previously published literature and interviews with entrepreneurs that were conducted especially for this course. The product itself has been built by Reaktor.
