Beyond Silicon Valley: How One Online Course Helped Support Global Entrepreneurs by Michael Goldberg grew out of the Case Western Reserve University massive open online course (MOOC). MOOC launched on Coursera in 2014 and used Cleveland as a case study for supporting entrepreneurs. Beyond Silicon Valley profiles 20 people who have supported entrepreneurship in communities from around the world that face challenges unheard of in Silicon Valley—challenges like economic hardship, political strife, corruption or a cultural aversion to risk-taking. Through lessons learned from the MOOC, they’ve added vitality, creativity and high-paying jobs in towns and cities all over the world.
