If you are looking for some engaging, hands-on, project based options for teaching entrepreneurship, this seminar should meet your needs. We’ve assembled a crack team of instructors to bring you a most engaging day. Two different approaches will be presented. The first involves having students develop a real, fully functioning business, from beginning to end, with a glimpse into both the entrepreneur’s head and spirit. The second approach involves competitive tasks, each of which incorporates elements of entrepreneurship.
ou will be provided with the key components necessary to replicate these two time-tested approaches, including learning modules, assignments, assessments, company/team setup, competitive tasks, community support, as well as internet resources for business plans, marketing plans and financial plans.
