The course will walk you through the process of starting a new technology-based venture from idea generation to commercialization. Through case analyses, mini lectures, guest speakers, class pitches, and business plan presentations, you will acquire skills in conceptualizing, developing and managing a successful new venture involved in or affected by technological innovation. These skills will then be applied to a class project focused on the development of a technology-based idea. The course is designed for graduate students in arts, sciences, engineering, health sciences, law and management. Upper-level undergraduate students are also welcome.
