This course is designed for students to learn from those who have been “in the trenches." In this course, students will have a rare opportunity to hear the stories of entrepreneurship from those who have actually done it. But, the learning doesn’t stop there—you’ll also have the opportunity to live out entrepreneurship by engaging in activities that will challenge you to determine your own entrepreneurial story and make it come alive.
This course is intended to provide an immersive, hands-on experience for aspiring entrepreneurs. This is achieved with:
- In-class and outside-of-class activities
- Guest speakers
- Reading assignments
- Learning how individual entrepreneurs launched their enterprises
Students will encounter and learn of the life of an entrepreneur through real-world stories and experiences of entrepreneurs discussing their business successes and failures. The course guests include serial entrepreneurs as well as nascent entrepreneurs within their first three years of starting their new venture.
