Course Details

DPELC Bay Area Trip

The Entrepreneurship Immersion Bay Area Spring Break course is designed to expose students to the entrepreneurship ecosystem in Silicon Valley and the Bay Area. Students will spend the week of Spring Break (March 23 - March 27) in the Bay Area meeting with start-up companies, venture capital funds, private equity funds, incubators / accelerators, technology companies, venture attorneys and various other thought leaders from across the entrepreneurial spectrum. The class will meet once prior to our week in California, and once following our return (dates and times to be determined). Our goal will be to understand how various entrepreneurial ventures are innovating in today's market and the role that law plays in fostering entrepreneurship and innovation in both early stage and larger companies. Additionally, prior to leaving for the Bay Area each student will be assigned one company that the group will be visiting. Students will conduct research in advance of travel, and during our week in the Bay Area each student will, prior to visiting his or her company, share background information regarding such company. At the last class meeting (following our return), each student will give a short presentation to the class regarding one or more unique ways in which such student's assigned company is innovating in the marketplace. This presentation will serve as the class project for each student.
