Dear friends of Startup Commons,
Imagine if there would not be public parks, internet would be a commercial product with proprietary limitations or if we would not have Linux, Android, WordPress, Wikipedia, Barcode, etc. I think we all would agree, that we simple would not have the internet and access to knowledge and solutions built on top of those as we have today.
We at Startup Commons believe that not only should globally neutral innovation entrepreneurship knowledge be free to the world, but it should also be properly organized. And that the best way to make it possible, is by collaborative open development, supported by logical open standard framework and collaborative structures.
Today, more than ever - together we can achieve more with less and faster. Where we can together help to start preparing people to new normal and towards rebuilding the economy.
How are we doing it?
We are producing slide presentations, webinars and booklets, where all materials are produced via open collaboration. Everyone have rights to the materials under creative commons licensing, to be able to publish, edit, iterate and distribute materials for free, and to create education programs, eLearning platforms, courses etc. based on this content. Offered for free, as paid education, or as part of other free or commercial solutions. Delivered via different channels; online, in person, virtually etc.
We are inviting all type of contributors that can participate into different focus areas: making translations, designing and improving visualizations, adding new content, becoming education partner, eLearning content integration, etc.
Where can you start?
We are collecting resources in our public repository on Trello and we invite to join to Open Innovation Entrepreneurship Curriculum conversations on OIEC Slack!
Our main objective is to build an interactive, systematically evolving and hence sustainable repository to help build the "index" of the overall innovation entrepreneurship journey and "an executive summary" view of all the key topics and contents. For that reason, we welcome your sincere and constructive feedback for creating an useful resource for all entrepreneurs in the world!
We Focus On Progress
Considering our ambition of global availability and use, surely we’re only getting started, but we’ve also taken great steps already:
Supporting startup ecosystem development, from entrepreneurship education, to consulting to digital infrastructure for connecting, measuring and international benchmarking.
