Today, information about entrepreneurship is widely accessible online. Still, 75% of all startups fail, for various reasons. In 2018, HBS Dean Nitin Nohria asked Shikhar Ghosh to develop and lead a new online offering on entrepreneurship that could better prepare entrepreneurs and help them to succeed. A serial entrepreneur, investor, and advisor to hundreds of founders, Shikhar has unique observations and practical expertise.
Shikhar recruited a small team and started the journey of collecting customer requirements and building a Minimum Viable Product. We quickly discovered that a deep need exists for well-structured entrepreneurial content from a trusted source. Entrepreneurs seeking advice are flooded with content options and opinions. But, too often, readily available content is unstructured, anecdotal, contradictory, and unproven. The need for reliable, trusted information is particularly acute in areas that do not have a well-developed entrepreneurial ecosystem. This project makes HBS’s intellectual assets available and accessible to those who need it. It offers insights, relevant tips, and reflections from founders, investors, educators, and operators.
Our goal: to share HBS’s deep knowledge and expertise in entrepreneurship beyond the HBS audience.
