Designing and delivering entrepreneurship and enterprise education courses that focus on and engage with early-stage new ventures

Hosted by the Masood Entrepreneurship Centre at the University of Manchester

Tuesday 7th May 2024, 10.00am-1.00pm, Online 

Summary

The workshop will explore entrepreneurship and enterprise education that focuses on new venture launch, management, survival and early growth. This is an area of entrepreneurship and enterprise education that is often over-looked or not given a great deal of attention. EE education often focuses on ideation, business models, pitching and plans or looks at how to scale new ventures. Yet whilst it is relatively easy to launch a business, the biggest challenge is ensuring that venture survives.

In the workshop, we will explore various approaches that focus on and engage with early-stage new ventures. These approaches will be outlined and evaluated by a range of speakers responsible for courses in this area. The types of approaches will include a range of new venture consultancy projects, action-based dissertation research projects and also the use of start-up computer simulations.

As well as speakers outlining their experiences and approaches to developing and delivering courses in this area, there will be opportunities for the audience to reflect on, discuss and share their own experiences.

The overall aim of the session being to try and identify what approaches are currently adopted in this area, what works, what the challenges are for developing and delivering courses in this area, with a key focus on engaging with early-stage new ventures.

Adam Frost (Senior Lecturer in Enterprise and Entrepreneurship), Masood Entrepreneurship Centre, University of Manchester
