Introduction to Entrepreneurship 

with David J. Olderman and Kiley Williams

A one-semester course for juniors and seniors. In the world of business, there are very few rules, and while it can be very rewarding, it can also be very unforgiving. There is a fear of the unknown, and that fear prevents even the most capable individuals from following their passion. This course will turn the unknown into the known, and it will provide students with a view into the world of an entrepreneur, working with partners and investors, and understanding how to make customers happy. They will also get a better understanding of the challenges that they will face in all aspects of business, whether they are starting a company, or working for an existing company. Students will do this by providing a structured environment where they can make mistakes, learn from those mistakes, and have the proper tools in their toolbox to take on any challenge that the real world throws their way.
