Welcome to learn about entrepreneurship!

In this course you will learn the basics of setting up a small business of your own. You will follow a budding entrepreneur – Veera – on her path towards setting up her own business. Will Veera succeed or not? You will find out at the end of the course!

The course is divided into 9 sessions. In each session, you will meet Veera and she will talk about what she has been doing and what challenges or questions she is facing. The course instructors, Lidia and Håkan, will then suggest how Veera could proceed in each situation. After the suggestion videos, there will be a couple of short lessons introducing key topics related to the session.

You also need to answer some quizzes and questions to complete each session. Note that for multiple choice questions, there can be more than one correct answer!

At the end of each session, there will also be links to additional material for those who want to explore the subject more deeply.

The wanna-be efficient brain

Throughout the years Lidia has taught Good Life Engine, the main challenge has always been the “wanna-be-efficient brain” that doesn’t leave the students at peace with how they spend their time. Many of us feel time pressure from squeezing too many things into our life. At Good Life Engine, we hope you will learn how to enjoy life rather than execute it.

It’s Zambian time

Four Aalto University students visited Zambia to work on a case for a local startup, together with students from Zambia, Kenya, and Uganda. They started their voyage with high expectations, but none of them could anticipate the most important lessons they'd learn.

Good routines, better life

At the core of the Good Life Engine course is the execution of well-being or self-development routines that students choose for themselves. We define routine as a sequence of actions regularly followed. Although our students decide upon their routines based on their individual goals, there are some common starting points in the process of choosing a good routine.
