This course introduces the main tools useful to kick-off a startup project. We focus on the potential use of Internet of Things in healthcare systems. Students will be asked to bring ideas to the class to use for their projects. Each student will introduce their idea to the class. Groups will be created and students will join the project they prefer. Complementary profiles will be encouraged to work together.
Each session consists of a theoretical followed by a practical part, during which students will apply the theory to their own projects. They will be evaluated based on a written report and group presentations. Throughout the course, students will be asked to use collaborative web and social media tools.

80% of Startups fail before their second birthday. This is because people build boring "Me Too" businesses and expect the crowds to flock. According to The New York Times, we get exposed to around 5,000 sales and marketing messages every day. We live in a very noisy world full of established businesses and hungry startups all fighting for the same precious customer eyeballs. This is why your business needs to STAND OUT and be different, if you want it to survive and thrive.

How do policymakers encourage government workers in Afghanistan to save money? What are effective ways to encourage parents in Kenya to send their daughters to school? How can a major anti-poverty program in Indonesia be designed to ensure low-income families receive benefits they are eligible for?
These are questions researchers in the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) network, including several professors in the Department of Economics, grapple with every day. Join J-PAL Policy staff for a conversation about how we use randomized controlled trials to test different approaches to reducing corruption, improving access to finance, generating livelihoods, and helping kids learn. We’ll talk about what types of programs and policies work, what types don’t, and why, and discuss how J-PAL’s staff around the world are using this evidence to influence real-world decisions.
The first session will focus on evidence in Labor (Livelihoods) and Education; the second session will focus on evidence in the Financial Inclusion and Governance sectors.
