Entrepreneurs face the challenge of building real companies, concurrently with developing their innovative products and solutions. Most entrepreneurs have little training or experience in the doâ€™s and donâ€™ts. Consequently, many entrepreneurs make business decisions that will limit the success of their companies, and unfortunately, too often, their own role in their companies.
This course differentiates itself from entrepreneurship courses taught in business schools. It emphasizes the practical human skills needed by entrepreneurs as they go about building their company. Entrepreneurs will need to learn about the scope and role of the many different departments in their company, the key success factors, and how to achieve it themselves. The entrepreneur, as a leader, has to be able to step into the role of salesperson, marketer, company spokesperson, customer support, director, business executive, test engineer, accountant, lawyer, as needed â€¦ sometimes switching hats many times in a day. And as the company grows, there is a need to staff it up with the right employees for the job
As a highly participative course, students will carry out assignments in a group setting, make individual presentations on unique aspects of the business concept and analyze various business cases. Entrepreneurs will learn how to build technical start-ups with an entrepreneurial culture
