Max Mirho from EntrepreNerd - No-code tools for building your startup
Max Mirho has taught entrepreneurship to students and professionals around the world by giving them the tools to experiment rapidly. He started creating and building tiny businesses publicly on the internet around 3 years ago through a live stream called EntrepreNerd, and through the recent boom in "no-code", he’s been able to tackle much larger startup ideas and help make tech entrepreneurship accessible to students from every background. In this session, you'll learn about what the no-code space is, and about some of the tools you can use to build technology products without learning an entire programming language. Not only that, but your development time for a finished prototype will drop from months to around a week at most. You'll learn about how to create anything on the web, from landing pages to full websites. You'll also be able to develop mobile apps, chrome extensions, and web apps - and publish them anywhere.

[External] HBS Tech Fellows
As technical and societal challenges become increasingly complex and cross traditional boundaries, leaders who tackle such problems require more than technical skill – they require training in innovation and problem-solving techniques, and the ability to work on interdisciplinary teams.
Made possible by a generous gift from the Roberts Family Foundation, the Fellows program enables a group of 10-15 outstanding Harvard College sophomores and juniors (from any College concentration) to build knowledge, skills, and a community, putting them on a path to launch and lead innovative endeavors – whether this be creating technology startups or leading innovation teams in governmental or non-profit/social organizations. Selected students are known as the Undergraduate Technology Innovation Fellows. Sign up for the info session here
