Course Summary

Through practical exercises with their peers, students work together to come up with their own concept for a business, before pitching this to a team of ‘dragons’ in order to secure investment.

They need to have all the key things in place – from the product idea to the business plan – in order to impress the dragons, so hard work is required and students are expected to put all of the knowledge gleaned through their workshops into practice.

Course Outcomes
