Description: Is there a market for that ‘big idea’ you’ve been tinkering with? What steps should you take to turn your idea into a business? And what pitfalls should you avoid? In this bootcamp for entrepreneurs, you’ll learn how to test your idea, identify your startup costs and requirements, develop a proposal and a marketing plan, and understand the stages of entrepreneurship – and how your needs and management framework changes with each.  In the end, you’ll understand how to raise money and (just as important) manage it. Geared towards the high tech sector, the course will conclude with students producing business concept proposals, which will be tested through crowdfunding (with the top three teams each receiving $2,500 in seed money).  This project will account for 50% of the student grade, with the remainder coming from quizzes and participation in an online discussion forum.

Review: No reviews.
