Why attend this course?

This 3-day course provides a practical and systematic approach to exploring and evaluating the core choices that entrepreneurs need to make as they translate their ideas into reality.

Students will experience a blend of interactive lectures, case analyses, and exercises

To achieve competitive advantage, innovation-driven and growth-oriented entrepreneurs must balance experimentation and learning with the range and application of a strategy.

Designed for innovation-driven and growth-oriented startups, this entrepreneurship course builds on an emerging body of work that moves beyond a one-size-fits-all approach to startups and instead focuses on the key choices that founders face as they start and scale their business.

Expected Outcomes
