generic activity including startups and corporate entrepreneurship It explores the opportunities and challenges faced by individuals starting up new ventures and the probable paths of career development for students pursuing entrepreneurship In addition to acquiring knowledge regarding the entrepreneurial process the course endeavors to help students move from a consumer orientationihow do I sell a productito an producer orientationihow do I sell a business ideaiand also to learn entrepreneurial project management through participation in teams Students who complete this course should be able to credibly assert whether a business opportunity should be exploited by launching a new venture and how to assemble the resources necessary to launch the new venture Likewise a student should also be able to recognize when a venture should not be launched because it is not feasible This course is designed to help students learn to identify evaluate and obtain control over opportunities that can be exploited by launching new ventures The course focuses on four themes 1 entrepreneurial opportunities 2 business feasibility analysis 3 the business plan and 4 planning for growth and change Class Format The course is comprised of interactive lectures class discussions team work and presentations It is important that you participate in the discussion of the readings for each class as participation in class is part of your grade In addition the team work is a very significant portion of this course The team work begins early and remains throughout the term culminating in the final business feasibility analysis that you will prepare This team work is a key feature of the class because very few entrepreneurs are able to do everything themselves teams are highly important for pretty much any type of business Textbook Allen K R 2009 Launching New Ventures An Entrepreneurial Approach 5Lh edition Houghton Mifflin Company Gradin Quizzes 7 21 Individual
