Entrepreneurial Ventures --- Entrepreneurship is about ambiguity, risk, failure, and success: embracing it, and learning from it. This course will explore entrepreneurship and identify the many contexts in which entrepreneurship manifests, including start-up, corporate, social, and public sector. This course will enable participants to sharpen their ability to find and evaluate opportunities for a new venture, as well as to think creatively and solve problems in highly unstructured situations. A broad range of topics essential to leading entrepreneurial ventures will be covered, including idea generation, feasibility analysis, starting a company, raising capital, sales and marketing strategies, attracting a capable team, creating a culture, and preparing for growth.
