About the Course:

The course is meant to help foster an interest in entrepreneurship. It will be interactive, taking students through the process of starting their own business. Every week different areas of starting a business will be covered and students will constantly be working on a course-long project starting their own business. Students will draft a business idea, conduct market research, take the first steps necessary to start their business, work to acquire financing, and more. While most projects will be “mock” it is our hope that this course-long project will help students find their entrepreneurial spirit and give students ideas of entrepreneurial endeavors they may be interested in pursuing. It is also our hope that any students with low-cost startups will actually begin working on them after this course.
