This module is where it all begins in Entrepreneurship training: It focuses on developing an entrepreneurial mindset and understanding of the underlying concepts and principles that explain entrepreneurship. Skills generally considered necessary for success in an entrepreneurial venture will be discussed by entrepreneurs, practitioners, and policy makers from various fields. Students will learn that an entrepreneurial edge can be developed in individuals and that entrepreneurship involves developing ‘living businesses’ where all aspects of the business need to be developed simultaneously to achieve the desired goals.
