Take an inside look at Stanford’s Startup Garage class, where students go from concept to company over the course of two quarters.

In Startup Garage, students learn to apply the concepts of design thinking, engineering, finance, and business organization. We help teams identify unmet customer needs, design new products or services that meet those needs, and develop business models to support the creation and launch of those products or services.

More than 30 successful companies have been founded by Startup Garage alumni, with over a billion dollars in funding raised by Startup Garage alums to date.
