Description: Looking for a highly interactive course? In this course, Dr. Lockett will introduce you to young entrepreneurs who are facing early stage hurdles in marketing, operations, and finance. Using video case studies, students can study these entrepreneurs’ underlying business strategies before sharing their solutions with the group. They can also listen to the advice given by five business advisors (along with learning the avenues these entrepreneurs chose – and the results yielded by these decisions). In addition, Lockett will also walk students through the steps of launching a business, including identifying opportunities, targeting customers, and securing capital.
