ABOUT THE COURSE

This course assists aspiring entrepreneurs in developing great ideas into great companies. With strong economies presenting rich opportunities for new venture creation, and challenging economic times presenting the necessity for many to make their own job, the need to develop the skills to develop and act on innovative business opportunities is ever present.

Using proven content, methods, and models for new venture opportunity assessment and analysis, students will learn how to enhance their entrepreneurial mindset and develop their functional skill sets to see and act entrepreneurially. The initial steps to creating a business plan, and raising financial capital to launch the firm, are examined as well. Our goal is to demystify the start-up process, and to help you build the skills to identify and act on innovative opportunities now, and in the future.

For me, the most intriguing part of the course was Week Two: Entrepreneurial Mindset, Motivations, and Behaviors:

  • Entrepreneurial mindset
  • Entrepreneurial motivations
  • Entrepreneurial behaviors
  • Risk taking in entrepreneurial decision-making
  • Risk, uncertainty, and stakeholder involvement

I learned quite a bit our the Entrepreneurial Mindset, entrepreneurs in general and how to better understand what it means to be a true entrepreneur!”
