Synopsis

The course provides entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial leaders with the opportunity to explore the nature and challenge of entrepreneurial work and specifically aims at putting into place the initial building blocks for coming to better grips with the exciting and increasingly prominent field of theory and practice related to creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship. Participants develop their own capacity to be creative and show how creativity can be put to work in organisational contexts. The nexus between creativity and innovation is considered and what innovation means and entails and where it comes from. Finally, participants are exposed to a number of managerial leadership challenges including the different ways or options of going into business, how to do market research, analyse entrepreneurial opportunities, how to draft a business plan, how to finance new and growing entrepreneurial ventures and their legal considerations.
