LBS logo London experience. World impact.

Are you an entrepreneur? Or an aspiring entrepreneur? If you need money to fund and grow your business, your customers could help you. Learn more on this free online course, run in collaboration with the University of London and online education partner Coursera. 

Join Associate Professor John Mullins’ MOOC (massive online open course) and study the five time-tested funding models that entrepreneurial superstars like Michael Dell, Bill Gates, Richard Branson have put to use.

You don’t have to raise venture capital to get a business off the ground. The vast majority of fast-growing companies take no angel or venture funding. Sadly, though, this is rarely talked about and not widely understood. Until now! In this MOOC, you’ll learn real, practical tools to help start and grow your business.

You’ll hear stories of incredibly creative entrepreneurs – their successes and failures – through no-holds-barred interviews with founders, investors, and other experts.

We’ve broken short lessons, interviews, thought-provoking questions, and optional things to read into bite-sized chunks, so you can log in and learn whenever and wherever you are.
