Media Ventures ~ Thur 10a-12n Spring 2010

Media Ventures ~ The MIT Media Lab Enterprises & Digital Innovations Seminar is the new Spring 2010 flagship course within the Media Lab Entrepreneurship Program. We first survey a broad landscape of emerging media technologies, followed by live- and historic-cases of inter- and entrepreneurship-based on Media Lab ideas, culminating in a term project.The core goal is to gain increased understanding of how emergent media and digital innovations translate into commercial reality and transform society. We survey case examples of both successful and failed businesses and generally grapple with the difficulties of deploying and diffusing products and as a means of exploring a range of business models and opportunities enabled by emerging Media Lab innovations. This year we will be focusing especially on personal health care, financial service innovations, mobile transactions, and social media generally. Please spread the word to those you think might be interested. First class Thurs morning February 4th, 2010.
