Launching the Venture
Studies the critical post-business plan and funding, pre-revenue stage of a start-up venture, an extremely busy time in the company's life. This segment of the company's life is often referred as the B-to-C round funding phase. This course assumes that you, the entrepreneur, have your initial business plan and your initial funding and that your venture is getting underway. It focuses on the 'execution' of the venture including product or service development, developing your 'go to market' strategy, company and product/service positioning, identifying the market influencers and developing effective strategies to win them over, company introduction to the market, product and service introduction, later-stage business plan strategies, and later-stage funding strategies. The course will run as a live simulation. Prerequisite: MGT 321. 
Please Note: Not all courses are scheduled each semester. Complete class schedules are available upon enrollment.
