Introduction to Entrepreneurship

Overview

Entrepreneurs are the creators and builders of new ventures that not only fulfill their own dreams, bring them huge fortune but also make a strong impact on the society and improve the lives of people.

A successful venture will lead to new or improved products/services, create new jobs and add values for owners, investors and the society. Starting up a venture is not difficult if you know how although a successful venture requires more than knowledge on entrepreneurship.

This course is an exploration into the fundamentals of entrepreneurship. Upon successful completion of the course, you would have a good understanding of entrepreneurship; the issues encountered on the entrepreneurial journey; and most importantly, how you can become an entrepreneur yourself. 

Specifically, the course covers aspects of accounting and finance essential for entrepreneurial venture, basic concepts on commercialization of technology, management of intellectual property and entry and exit strategies.
