Leerdoelen This course is part of the university minor “Entrepreneurship”. Upon completion of the course the student is able to:
1. Understand the basic characteristics of different contexts in which entrepreneurship occurs
2. Understand basic theories, methods, and tools to effectively analyze the dynamics of these contexts
3. Apply this knowledge in an integrative way to identify contextual success factors for new business development
Omschrijving If you want to successfully develop a new business, insight in the entrepreneurial context is of vital importance. Specifically, the potential of your business opportunity could be significantly affected by external contextual factors. These factors may be related to, for example, important stakeholders or competitors, the entrepreneurial culture, or the technology involved.
The aim of this course is to provide students with an overview of different contexts in which entrepreneurship occurs, including their basic characteristics. Students will learn about the communalities underlying entrepreneurial activity in general, but also the idiosyncrasies of each context. Guest lectures and a field trip will be used to further illustrate these contexts.
At the same time, different theories, methods, and tools will be introduced which can be used to identify and analyze contextual success factors for new business development. Students will apply this knowledge to the specific context of a real life entrepreneurial case. This will enable them to identify the contextual success factors associated with a business opportunity.
