Entrepreneurial Growth 7,5 Credits
Course ContentsFor many entrepreneurs growth is the ultimate reward. Not only does growth provide a possible positive return for all money and time spent but it is also an important indicator that the products and services provided are appreciated in the market place. At the same time, growth creates new challenges that have to be met. In the growth and development of the new venture, both the firm and its founder(s) are likely to go through some considerable transitions. An established company cannot be managed in the same way as a very small start-up. In this course we focus on managerial issues during different phases of the new venture's expansion and transitions. Successful entrepreneurship requires more than luck and money. It is a process involving creativity, opportunity identification, resource acquisition, planning and management. The different modules of the course follow the entrepreneurial process of expanding a new venture.
