This course introduces students to entrepreneurial education programs, technology transfer system, and global entrepreneurial network. The Entrepreneurship Development Program covers the entire venture creation process, from idea generation to building viable global businesses, with special emphasis on the nurturing roles of corporations, universities, governments, and foundations. Using our entrepreneurial culture as a model, students learn what they need to know in order to develop ideas into successful businesses and to increase entrepreneurial opportunities in their corporations, institutions, and regions.

The program will enable participants to :

  • CREATE, identify, and evaluate new venture opportunities
  • INTERPRET customer needs and quantify the value proposition
  • NAVIGATE the venture capital investment process
  • UNDERSTAND how the process of starting new ventures may vary geographically and culturally
  • OBTAIN critical feedback on business plans
  • START and build a successful technology-based company
  • DEVELOP the skill and fervor needed to create totally new industries
  • LEVERAGE new science and technologies from corporate or university laboratories
  • ENHANCE and expand their networks

The Learning Experience

Through lectures by senior faculty, visits to high-tech startups, and live case studies with successful entrepreneurs, students will be exposed to the content, context, and contacts that enable entrepreneurs to design and launch successful new ventures based on innovative technologies. Specially designed team projects give participants hands-on, practical experience developing a business plan, while networking events bring participants together with members of entrepreneurial community.

“The program delivers on its promise-entrepreneurs can be made, not born. I have been able to harden my ideas in the crucible of entrepreneurial participants, faculty, and business builders.”
