MBA6188Venture Assessment3 ch
This course will be a valuable addition to the existing offerings of Entrepreneurship courses. The course focuses on the venture assessment process from the perspective of early stage investors. This is because the ventures they focus on are inherently risky, they epitomize the ambiguous information – constrained environment in which decisions must be made, and because such investors have developed frameworks aiding those decisions. The skills students learn will thus be valuable not merely within investment firms, but also in various other settings, such as in start-ups, large firms, or law, accounting, and banking firms, that seek to launch, evaluate, or support new initiatives. Students will develop a skillset that will allow them to see value by mitigating for the risks that others only see barriers.
