So you want to be an entrepreneur. There’s more to it than you might think! This course introduces fundamental components of business and entrepreneurship by giving participants the opportunity to work with entrepreneurs on real-world problems. Students will practice working in groups, scoping deliverables, setting deadlines, talking to stakeholders, and making presentations. In the final segment of the course, participants will put their entrepreneurial knowledge and group management skills to work creating startups and competing for a fictional $50,000 in seed funding. This course requires weekly engagement but is primarily asynchronous which allows students to work around their school schedule. There is a synchronous meeting that will take place one evening per week that students are expected to attend. Meeting times to be determined at the beginning of the term.
