Tufts.io is a for-credit seminar on startups and technology offered through the Experimental College at Tufts University. This mentorship-driven course is offered exclusively to first-year Tufts students. The seminar is taught by Tufts seniors Jack McDermott and John Brennan, two students with firsthand experience working in technology startups big and small.
Let's empower the next generation of student-entrepreneurs. Tufts.io is designed to equip first-year students at Tufts to become entrepreneurs; by unleashing their creative spark and channeling the "inner entrepreneur," this seminar takes learning to a new level. We focus on the people behind the ventures that are solving the world's biggest challenges.
With a focus on collaboration, this class will forgo the traditional lecture and homework format. Instead, we believe in learning from those around us. Tufts.io will join together each week to learn through case studies, mock scenarios, foundational "innovation" readings, visits from experienced guest speakers, and trips into the field to view actual ventures.
