Part 2: Founder's Journey at MIT
What road are you embarking upon in starting a company, and what obstacles threaten your success?  What else and who else will you need?  These are the themes that are explored by Ken Zolot in the MIT seminar "The Founder's Journey".

In this session of Nuts and Bolts, Ken has interactive discussions with a freshman (who already has a startup running) and a seasoned grad student (who has done a few), to show the book-ends of life as an MIT student. Through these discussions you will learn what it's like to be a student at MIT while trying to launch a startup.
