Critical factors affecting technology-based ventures: opportunity assessment; the entrepreneurial process; founders and team building; preparation of a business plan including market research, marketing and sales, finance, and manufacturing considerations. Students must have an idea for a new venture to participate in the course, and must be prepared to develop this new venture idea as part of the course. Course Information: 3 undergraduate hours. 3 graduate hours.
This course is designed to help young entrepreneurs make significant progress on a well thought out business idea. The idea should be reasonably novel (expect competition) but most importantly, that you are passionate about moving the business forward. We focus on building, refining, and strengthening the idea by completing a comprehensive business model, prototyping, and applying for funding. Weekly case studies help students understand the challenge of starting and running a business. Join this class if you have an idea ready to go on day one! This course will be delivered via Compass 2g. This course meets the first 8 weeks of the semester.
