The overall goal of this course is to bolster your ability to work with scarce resources while balancing growth and profitability. Relying on skills developed in B111, you will build “muscle memory” so you can raise capital and effectively interface with stakeholders in future business creation and growth. We will analyze new ventures and projects from readings, real-world illustrations, case studies, a location-based assignment, and your own business plan. We also will discuss how entrepreneurs, investors, and policymakers can move the needle in order to bring about more equal access to entrepreneurial capital and support socially and ecologically responsible investments. As potential entrepreneurs, you will discover how to raise capital and effectively interface with investors, board members, employees, and other stakeholders in order to maximize positive outcomes.
