ENT4013 - Planning New Ventures (BAS)
3 credits (3 lecture hours)
This course will expose students to basic entrepreneurial finance and the principles of business planning. Students have the opportunity to complete a business plan for the creation of a new venture. In the process of development, they will identify new emerging opportunities for providing goods and services, demonstrate the need for such goods or services through market research, and develop financial statements for the proposed venture. The course will then trace new venture creation from the first perception of an opportunity to the point of value realization. This will include testing/adapting the business concept, developing a business plan, defining a market and distribution plan, gathering resources, and raising finance.
