Launching and Leading Startups (KIEI-967-0)
KIEI 967 | Launching and Leading Startups, a new course that replaces The Entrepreneurial Experience, is a case-driven survey course that examines what it’s like to be in the shoes of an entrepreneurial CEO. Students explore some of the biggest and most challenging topics facing entrepreneurial CEOs, such as how to reduce the risks that are inherent in starting a new business, determine the best go-to-market strategies to gain customer adoption, and execute with precision. The course targets not only entrepreneurs who want to start or buy their own businesses, but also entrepreneurially minded students who, in short order, will be seeking to work within early-stage startups. The course also proves beneficial for “intrapreneurs” who will be innovating inside larger firms. Launching and Leading Startups is offered during winter and spring quarters
