This course aims to provide you insight into how to launch and grow a high-impact venture from a resource-based perspective. In other words, after having taken this course you should understand which resources are crucial to venture success, how to gather them, what elements to take into account when mobilizing resources as well as how you can get things done without resources.

The societal impact of enterprising individuals cannot be contested. They found companies that challenge (and often replace) incumbents and they have an important role in introducing innovative products and services to new or established markets. However, entrepreneurs never operate in isolation; many entrepreneurs cofound their venture with others and establish partnerships to gather the resources necessary for launching and growing their ventures.
This course covers co-founder enrollment, customer enrollment and financial enrollment. For instance, you will explore how to put together an entrepreneurial team, examine team dynamics as well as how to recruit the best employees. You will review different types of financial resources available to entrepreneurs as well as how to select the best one for a specific type of venture. Based on this, you will also examine the role of business modeling and customer validation as part of a venture's resource mobilisation. This course will explore the concept of bootstrapping or how to get things done when you do not have the required resources. In all of the above, attention will be paid to how a venture's resource mobilisation strategy is not a static concept, but is one that changes dynamically over the lifecycle of a venture.
