Entrepreneurship Team Project

The MSL Entrepreneurship Team Project (ETP) class is designed to expose students to the business and legal ecosystems of a region of the US, e.g. Silicon Valley. Students will participate in a class component during the Spring 1 term and then will participate in a “field research” component over Spring Break during the Spring 2 term. In the class component, students will learn about the area they will be travelling to, and they will develop and prepare for the projects they will undertake during their field research in that area. During their field research, students will participate in a variety of activities required to execute their projects, including company visits and interviews with relevant business and other officials. After the field research, students will work together to prepare and present a final team project. In 2016, the MSL ENTP will involve Silicon Valley. The particular focus of this course will be the entrepreneurial landscape in this area, possibly with some focus on companies that have a presence in Israel. Students will explore the current business climate, how entrepreneurship is fostered, and how entrepreneurship in that region interacts with business and entrepreneurship elsewhere. Students will begin their preparation by reading Start-Up Nation. No pre-requisites No final exam. There will be a final project. Start-Up Nation and other materials.
