We strive to develop your skills in opportunity identification and evaluation, as well as an understanding of the steps and competencies required to launch a new business. The class is appropriate for anyone with a strong interest in new ventures (including social ventures). This includes not only potential entrepreneurs, but also those interested in the financing of new ventures, working in new ventures, or in broader general management of new or small organizations.”
