We are now living in the entrepreneurial age. Knowledge about entrepreneurial process is critical, not only for students who are interested in entrepreneurial career, but also for students who seek to work in large organizations, because the need for all companies to maintain an entrepreneurial perspective is increasingly important.
This course will examine the venture creation and growth process at the various stages of generating ideas, recognizing and pursuing opportunities, raising capital, building infrastructure, and eventually harvesting the venture. This course addresses the issues faced by entrepreneurs who wish to turn opportunity into viable start-up companies that create value, and empowers students to develop their own approaches, guidelines, and skills for being entrepreneurs. During this course, students can practice the entrepreneurial process, and can become more adept at the decision making and skills of OPPORTUNITY RECOGNITION and RESOURCE ACQUISITION.
In this course, we will rely upon lectures, case studies, and course projects to expose students to a wide array of ideas and material on entrepreneurship. Therefore, significant preparation and participation is expected from students. Our emphasis will be on engaging in lively and productive class discussions. Students will be expected to come to class fully prepared to discuss the reading and case material, by considering key issues or questions that are raised as a result of preparation for that week.

Group Project: Students are required to work in teams with hypothetical entrepreneurial venture and each team will be required to complete a shortened version of business plan to screen your team’s venture. The primary purpose of this exercise is to determine whether the business idea can be shaped into an opportunity that is worth pursuing. Thus, you need to develop a clear understanding of your product or service offering, the market, and the business model. The exercise teaches students how to approach business as something evolving, not completely under control. The exercise is structured around teams (as in real world).
The written report should not exceed 15 pages in length, including supporting materials. The dates for the oral presentations are listed on the syllabus. Each team will be given 20 minutes to present followed by 10 minutes of Q&A.
