Given the success of their last MOOC (Massive Open Online Course), Chris Tucci & Marc Gruber have come back from the past to revisit their "Launching New Ventures" course, offered this time also in Mandarin!

In the last week of Launching New Ventures, a free online course on how to bring high-tech products to market, Chris & Marc left us with the image of two Professors gleefully exploring the land of Marco Polo, sometimes credited as the first modern entrepreneur. This year the Professors have returned with improvements to the course experience and program outreach. 

Since the end of the course's first run in May 2015, CDM hosted a workshop for the top three performing teams, made tweaks to the course format and structure, and added new languages to the course. Students are now able to take the course entirely in English, French and Mandarin, with the possibility of viewing slides and video subtitles in these three languages plus KinyanRwanda.

Meanwhile, Chris perfected his "time machine" which you can watch him test with Marc in the course's new teaser below.

Interested explorers should sign up now to receive updates on the course, which will be available as of September 16th, 2016.

Note: the language refers to the language you will submit your assignment in. 

While the course is designed to take approximately 5 weeks, thanks to the new on-demand model students can complete the course in more or less than 5 weeks, according to their own schedule. Participants which watch the videos and complete quizzes and assignments before November 15th will be eligible for 2.500 USD seed funding prize. Enroll in the course today to embark on your entrepreurial journey, and to obtain more information on the seed funding - no prior courses or experience in entrepreneurship are required.
