Course Details

Entrepreneurship Lab: Part I

The Entrepreneurship Lab introduces students to the entire innovation life cycle from ideation to investor presentation. The course will cover needs identification, value proposition development, legal protection, navigation of regulatory issues, and business plan presentation. Students will select a project for commercialization and work in teams to assess and refine its commercial viability, technical feasibility, and user impact. Teams will work hands-on to transform their ideas into a marketable invention. They will undertake the necessary steps to plan for the commercial development of their inventions, including developing suitable legal protection for their ideas and addressing technology transfer issues. In the Fall 2 class, students will define an unmet market need, understand the key stakeholders, and assess the legal and technical risk factors in commercializing a solution. In the Spring 1 class, which is a continuation of the Fall 2 class, students will apply principles from patent, regulatory, and entrepreneurship law to their project to create the foundation necessary to move their technology into the market.
