|Description||Developing entrepreneurial and innovative businesses is very different to managing large established businesses in a global context. In addition to exploring the special problems (and advantages) associated with entrepreneurial small and medium enterprises (SMEs), the unit will also be relevant for future managers of corporate ventures. Topics will include opportunity identification, harnessing and leveraging resources and capabilities, funding new ventures, and the global aspects of venturing and innovation. The unit will bring together the skills you have acquired across many disciplines, and will require your active participation as you work with businesses in their search for growth options and appropriate funding. You will also gain insight from the processes vital for successful entrepreneurial activity, including strategy formulation, design thinking, decision-making, and pitching.|
