SYLLABUS Applications in Entrepreneurial Finance: Fintech - Syllabus Sabrina T Howell, New York University
4 May 2018
4 May 2018
Entrepreneurs have started new ventures for generations. Success was more a function of tenacity and a measure of the idea underpinning the business. Errors in the structure and early conduct of the enterprise could be overcome with time through learning. In the new paradigm, tolerance for such errors is acutely narrow. Competition has become intense, technology-based, market-focused and highly competent. In such a competitive environment the lack or misuse of the application of currently available technology to the structure and conduct of a new business could quickly spell its demise. Similarly, the inability to adapt the enterprise to the emergence of new technologies to make it marketdriven and structure-perfect could have the same effect. In summary, competition is just too tough; the end could come quickly.
SYLLABUS Engineering Entrepreneurship (EGN4641) Entrepreneurship for Engineers (EGN6640) Course Syllabus Erik Sander, University of Florida
The goal of this course is to build upon the concepts learned in the Entrepreneurial Projects I Capstone and give Computer Science students more advanced tools to be successful technical co-founders of their own startups. We will explore later stages of the Lean Startup/Customer Development iterative methodology. Student teams will build upon their low-fidelity MVPs that exhibited traction to develop high-fidelity MVP products. Students will learn business concepts like marketing, sales, and finance that are relevant to IT startup formation, hopefully in partnership with business school teams. Students will also learn legal concepts relevant to startup formation. Invited guest lecturers from the entrepreneurial community will provide their domain expertise, which may include topics such as product development, Agile software engineering, mobile strategy, and big data/cloud computing, as well as mentoring. Student teams will present/pitch their startup company/concepts in various public forums, which may include the CU New Venture Challenge, local Tech meetup, CS/College Expo, startup2students-like job fair, and/or the final Demo Day presentation.

SYLLABUS ENTRE 440/540 – Business Plan Practicum Syllabus Tom Eckmann, Foster School of Business
This highly experiential course will introduce you to a structured way of engaging in entrepreneurship known as the Lean Startup method. We will shed light on how entrepreneurs work, from idea generation to the funding and scaling of a new venture. Given the limited time we have together, our focus will be on for-profit mobile apps and web-based solutions to customer problems instead of the creation of brick-and-mortar businesses or non-profit organizations. A focus on money-making ventures will allow us to experience more of what entrepreneurs in the field face daily. Importantly, the fundamental aim of this course is not the establishment of a successful app or web business per se (although several students have done it before!), but to provide a comprehensive toolkit for prospective founders, so that their decision to engage in entrepreneurship is as well-thought-out and fruitful as possible.

MGMT 495 is designed to enable students to understand various functions entrepreneurs or owner managers perform to successfully manage and grow a new or small business.

To enable students to sharpen communication skills, especially writing and presentation skills, a substantial component of class assignments and grade is based on written cases and presentations. In addition, a significant portion of student grade is based on their contribution (participation) to class discussions. This course will benefit not only students interested in becoming entrepreneurs, but also those interested in pursuing all other career paths.

SYLLABUS GEB 5516 - Technological Entrepreneurship - Syllabus - Thomas O'Neal, University of Central Florida
Two defining characteristics of the technology industry are its dynamic nature and the interconnected nature of technology products and services. This results in a continuous need for new products—and for managing all of the aspects of discovering, designing, developing, supporting and making money from these products. In technology companies, the Product Management organization is responsible for the “inbound” product development activities as well as “outbound” product marketing activities: discovering customer needs, defining product requirements, orchestrating the development of products and solutions to address these needs, taking new products to market and managing products as a business. In a technology startup, a Product Manager is often a co-founder of the firm. In mid-sized and large technology firms, the best Product Managers are intrapreneurs responsible for product innovation and managing one or more products as a business. This course equips students with the frameworks, tools and direct experience to become effective technology product managers (whether as entrepreneurs or intrapreneurs). Students will gain hands-on experience via an industry-sponsored project and targeted cases—including several cases developed specifically for this course.
SYLLABUS Entrepreneurship KIEI 932 Product Management for Technology Companies: An Entrepreneurial Perspective Mohanbir Sawhney, Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University
Social entrepreneurship is a rapidly developing and changing business field in which business and nonprofit leaders design, grow, and lead mission-driven enterprises. As the traditional lines blur between business, government, and nonprofit enterprises, it is critical that business students understand the opportunities and challenges in this new landscape. Through guest speakers, case discussion, lecture, and student presentations this course will explore this emerging field. Students will be expected to develop a business plan for a social enterprise. Creating this business plan will require substantial effort and this plan is an essential part of the learning experience for students. Because the field of social entrepreneurship is interdisciplinary and in its infancy, the course will be introductory in nature and will draw heavily from cases, speaker experience, and student inquiry.
