BUKD-X501 Venture Evolution and Ecosystems - Immersion
- 12 Weeks
- Prerequisite(s): BUKD-N563
Successful entrepreneurs are seldom the solo mavericks portrayed by the
media—they are embedded in a network that provides feedback, support, and
resources that help the would-be entrepreneur move his or her ideas forward.
Some venture ecosystems, like Silicon Valley ,Boston, Austin, and increasingly
Indianapolis, have a rich and complex venture community and bring different
parts of this network together at key times—think South by Southwest in Austin.
This course will center on the Innovation Showcase, in Indianapolis, IN. This
signature event brings together entrepreneurs, investors, and other members of
the venture community for education, networking, and pitching ideas. Understanding
the key components of a venture ecosystem and engaging in your own community is
an important step in developing your entrepreneurial acumen and raising your
innovation IQ. The class will not only
provide an intense and educational experience with the event, but allow
participants to then map their own venture ecosystems to better engage and
network for future success. Note: N563 is a pre-requisite for the MS in
Entrepreneurship and the Dual Degree for Entrepreneurship students only.
