This module is designed to introduce participants to entrepreneurial thinking and action generally, and the creation of new ventures specifically. Although the focus is on starting new commercial ventures it will also be relevant to starting social enterprises and new lines of business in existing companies (intrapreneurship).
Students will generate their own new business ideas, develop them collaboratively in small teams and undertake the initial phases of bringing them to market, including considerable interaction with potential customers.
The course will cover major theoretical and conceptual issues in the entrepreneurship research literature and show how they apply in a variety of contexts and relate to everyday examples of entrepreneurship in our economy and society.
