This newspaper article covers the first time this new and experimental curriculum was taught and evaluated at the George Washington University School of Business. Later the curriculum was used at Harvard, and then other schools where students started building their companies during the course, and many were generating income before the end of the course. This course predated the show "Shark Tank" - - - and in many ways it was similar as the students presented to the venture capitalists on the last day of the course with the interaction between entrepreneurial teams and venture capitalists being similar to that seen on the show "Shark Tank". This curriculum evolved into what we now use for the Planet Startup program. Our first two programs where in Ghana - - - the first within the interior of the nation, in Tamale, and the second in Agona Swedru, near Accra.
