Making Something People Love // BUSINESS 127, DESIGN 218

Alexis Ohanian, Co-founder,

Tuesday, June 21st from 8:00 pm to 9:30 pm. 

You've made something people want. Great - that's required before graduating to creating something people love. This course will provide guidelines for creating an enthusiastic following, examining the cult-like obsession with brands like Apple, as well as the instructor's own success growing reddit into the largest yet tightest community online, with 20M uniques a month. Ohanian is currently doing the same with hipmunk and breadpig - neither of which are inherently social - so the course will offer lessons for both types of startup.

Alexis Ohanian is the retired co-founder of reddit (acquired by Condé Nast) and presently founder of breadpig, trustee of the Awesome Foundation, angel investor, and a Kiva Fellow.  He is donating his share for the class to the Institute on Higher Awesome Studies.

Use the hashtag #gasomethingpplelove to ask follow-up questions and continue the conversation.
