Leerdoelen This course is part of the faculty minor 'Innovation and Entrepreneurship' of the faculty of Economics & Business (a collaboration with the University of Groningen Centre of Entrepreneurship), and the university minor 'Entrepreneurship'. It is of interest to students who want to learn how start-up firms and established companies develop new business propositions.
Upon completion of the course the student is able to:
1. Integrate concepts from the disciplines of (entrepreneurial) marketing, innovation & technology management, and entrepreneurship, as offered in the courses of the university and faculty minor
2. Apply this knowledge, together with entrepreneurial skills, to develop a new business
3. Reflect on practices of entrepreneurship and business development, including working in a multidisciplinary team
Omschrijving The course 'Entrepreneurship Project' is the concluding course of the faculty minor 'Innovation and Entrepreneurship' and university minor 'Entrepreneurship', and can be considered a Student Venturelab. In this course, students will develop an empirically well-founded solution to a practical business development challenge in a multidisciplinary project setting. There are two main sources of challenges:
- the student’s own entrepreneurial idea
- an entrepreneurial idea delivered by an existing SME, larger firm or entrepreneurial team
The starting point of the course is a certain knowledge element. This element is often technology based, for example health- or energy-related devices, developed at the University of Groningen. The goal is to create an empirically validated understanding of the corresponding business model. In-between steps are:
- validating customer needs
- developing suggestions for products/services to satisfy those needs
- validating the solution
Theory and tools from the disciplines of (entrepreneurial) marketing, entrepreneurship and innovation & technology management are applied during these three steps.
