Michael Goldberg with Davey Berris recording the pilot Beyond Silicon Valley podcastMichael Goldberg, assistant professor of design and innovation, launched the first episode of his podcast series, "Beyond Silicon Valley Podcast." The podcast shares the stories of the entrepreneurs all around the world who have been impacted by the Beyond Silicon Valley MOOC. To date, over 100,000 students from 190 countries have enrolled in the course.

Goldberg's pilot podcast focuses on Macedonia, a small country near Greece and Albania.

"People interested in starting a business in Macedonia face huge obstacles such as lack of access to capital," writes Goldberg in his latest Huffington Post blog. "A small but passionate group of my former MOOC students were determined to improve the climate for entrepreneurs in Macedonia. They've made impressive progress in a short time with innovative ideas that I think can be replicated in other parts of the world."
