Primary goal: To understand how science-based research and technological breakthroughs can be transformed into new business.
Secondary goals:  To develop a solid theoretical understanding of the process of market opportunity identification and evaluation in the context of new technologies.  To explore the frontier of current knowledge when it comes to creating value from technological inventions and managing early-stage commercialization processes.  To practically apply your knowledge on early stage commercialization efforts.  To channel back your practically acquired knowledge into theoretical conceptualizations of the entrepreneurial opportunity identification and evaluation process.
The course Technology Entrepreneurship aims to help you understand and master core entrepreneurial challenges of turning science into products and products into businesses. We will adopt a strongly entrepreneurial lens. Meaning that we will look at important technology commercialization activities through the eyes of a potential technology entrepreneur or investor.
The courses of the Entrepreneurship minor draw on the scholarly entrepreneurship literature. You do NOT need to have prior knowledge in the functional domains of business administration or small business management (e.g. strategy, marketing, accounting, HRM, finance, operations). However, we strongly encourage you to take the two introductory courses of the minor (EBC2171, EBC2172) BEFORE taking this course. Your command of English in speech and writing needs be adequate to actively prepare for, participate in, and contribute to the classes. Also, make sure you can commit sufficient time during this block to accommodate the work load.
