Students will research entrepreneurial ideas and determine how to turn an idea into a successful startup enterprise given the current and anticipated demographic, technological and social climates. Students will also be offered an organized, step-by-step approach to preparing a business plan. Once students are able to assess the feasibility of their own business ideas based on their personal strengths, skills, and financial goals, they will develop and produce a comprehensive business plan. Students will analyze the organization and management of a new business and map out how to execute a new business venture. The plan will enable the students to solve problems "on paper" before they become operational or money problems.
