Course Overview [Autogenerated] Hi, everyone. My name is Dan Appleman and welcome to my course. So you want to be an entrepreneur? I am an entrepreneur. Have been one since 1981. I'll tell you more about that later. But how about you? Have you ever imagined what it would be like to start your own company, to be independent, to be a success? Most technologists I know have thought about it or dreamt about it. Sometimes it's a lifelong dream and sometimes a straw to grass back when the right job or any job is hard to find. But what is it really like? What does it take? What do you really need to know? This course will cover almost every aspect of entrepreneurship, from developing the original idea of finding the right people to figuring out the financing. And, most important, you'll have an understanding of what you might be getting yourself into and the tools to understand if you have what it takes and if not how to fill in the gaps. Before beginning this course, I encourage you to watch my course career and survival strategies for technologists, which provides a good foundation for this one. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how you 2 may undertake one of the most exciting careers you can imagine with this course. So you want to be an entrepreneur here at plural site?
