The course introduces the role of the entrepreneur, innovation and technology in the entrepreneurial process. The focus is the development of growth oriented and innovative ventures - whether for-profit or not-for-profit -. The course is relevant to a) those individuals thinking about starting a business, b) those who are already in business - large or small, c) those who are interested in commercialising their own innovations or of others, and d) those who advise entrepreneurs or engage in policy making in the entrepreneurship area. Developing an entrepreneurial mindset and enterprising skill set is critical for constantly changing markets or workplaces. As such, this course advances students career readiness by instilling an entrepreneurship mindset, an orientation towards opportunity and a propensity towards action.
