Our built environment — the human-made spaces in which we live and work — has evolved over centuries. But this evolution has left gaps in its wake, leading to challenges in modern cities. In the Entrepreneurship in Architecture, Planning and Real Estate online short course, you’ll learn to identify, analyze, and ultimately fill these gaps with a design-based solution.
Centering on the value iteration method, this program allows you to create your own solution to an urban problem, and explore the process of launching a new venture through this lens. You’ll also receive insights from experts within MITdesignX, an on-campus venture accelerator housed in the MIT School of Architecture and Planning (MIT SA+P), and develop an action plan that you can use to translate your business solution to the real world.
Is this course for you?
This program focuses on entrepreneurship in urban and the built environment. As such, it will prove beneficial to existing entrepreneurs who work in the built environment already, and are looking for new skills or opportunities that can be applied to their current or new businesses. It will equally provide key knowledge to those who work in the built environment, but are not yet entrepreneurs. These professionals will learn the process of launching a venture in an environment they’re already familiar with, allowing them to translate their current experience into new areas. Existing entrepreneurs who haven’t worked directly in the built environment will gain insights into this sector, and will have the opportunity to explore the value offered by this growing market.
