The 1Mby1M Methodology is based on case studies. In this course, Sramana Mitra shares the tribal knowledge of tech entrepreneurs by giving students the rare seat at the table with the entrepreneurs, investors and thought leaders who provide the most instructive perspectives on how to build a thriving business. Through these conversations, students gain access to case studies exploring the alleys of entrepreneurship. Sramana’s synthesis of key learnings and incisive analysis add great depth to each discussion.

Online Education and EdTech were big trends before Covid. But Covid has driven this trend to exponential adoption levels.

One of the bottlenecks in the adoption of online education previously was that people were required to change their learning habits. Well, Covid has created a Tsunami of habit-changing across the board, especially in online-learning.

Investors and entrepreneurs have noted. The time for doing new, creative ventures in online education has never been more favorable.

All the methodology building blocks you have been learning through Sramana’s entrepreneurship fundamentals courses apply. You can, for instance, bootstrap an EdTech startup with a Paycheck or with Services, then raise money (or not). You can build a Unicorn (or not). You can do your venture as a solo entrepreneur.

In addition, you will learn domain specific lessons from entrepreneur case studies and thought leader interviews. You will also listen to investor perspectives on marketplace ventures and new trends they (and Sramana) have identified.

Online Education and EdTech still have numerous open problems. Therefore, entrepreneurs looking for ideas to develop as new startups would do well to study the trend and the opportunities thereof. In the interviews, Sramana always spends time with practicing entrepreneurs exploring what open problems they see in their domains, from their respective vantage points. These serve as excellent pointers for entrepreneurs to go dig in fertile soil in search of pain points around which to build new startups.

In addition, discussions around Sramana’s own ideas are also included in this course.

The 1Mby1M courses are all heavily based on interview-based case studies on Innovation, Business Models, Go To Market Strategies, Validation Principles, and various other nuances of an entrepreneur’s journey. We offer extensive opportunities for entrepreneurs to learn the lessons from the trenches from successful entrepreneurs who have done it before and Investors who support their ambition.
