Companies like BBC, Walmart, GE, Merck and NGOs like Datakind and the DOT will share hard-won lessons, painful mistakes, and clever insights. We’re introducing a new Tutorial Day track packed with case studies, where you can hear from practitioners across a wide range of industries.

We call this track Data Case Studies. In a series of 12 half-hour talks aimed at a business audience, you’ll hear from household brands and global companies as they explain the challenges they wanted to tackle, the approaches they took, and the benefits—and drawbacks—of their solutions. If you want practical insights about applied data, look no further.

Join us at Strata+ Hadoop.

NYU ITP Business 101.1 Innovation + Entrepreneurship

NYU ITP Fall Semester

This course is about understanding the levers that drive business, and learning how to turn them into your favor.

You will learn through experience and work in teams to develop a concept from the generation of an idea to launch or market test. 

ITP NYU

Warning: the course involves a field work commitment of 5-6 hours per team per week. Much of the work of business model innovation is done outside of the classroom, in direct observation and conversation with your potential customers. The primary focus of the course is the work of developing your network capital – building connections with potential customers, partners, investors, and subject matter experts to help define opportunities that the concept is designed to solve, and early stage product development. A strong component of individual leadership development is built into the course- for students to identify your core values, and to work in teams to co-create a vision for your project, or your business.

We’ll bring the best thinking and methods from MBA school, Lean Startup, Design Thinking, Business Model Canvas, Innovation Accounting, Social Impact Entrepreneurship, Leadership Development, and Agile Methodology.
