Entrepreneurship Program 201
The world needs leaders with a capacity of addressing key issues in society. This program will equip our young, ambitious students through an eye-opening opportunity as they learn how the leaders tackle complex challenges in the real-world. We will use affordable and clean technology as the focus topic, since it is continuously debated in society today.
Students will take course about US government. The curriculum will look at the US government in regard to its structure, procedures and how it functions in American society.
The morning sessions are led by distinguished political figures, attorneys, judges, as well as experts in the area.
In the afternoon group sessions, an emphasis will be focused on the impact of affordable and clean energy to the society. Lead by experts in the field, students collectively will perform data collection, deep research of historical and current situation, and interview/survey people on the street, and craft a better solution that can improve the community and train on how to better advance their proposal, communicate to their audience and influence the community with the biggest possible impact.
As a final product, students will come up with a legislative proposal and present it to a panel of experts including a member of congress.
Every year in the US, billions of dollars are invested in the research and development of new technologies that have the promise to improve people’s lives. However, only a small portion of these new technologies succeed in today’s market. Failures often occur because a technology fails to meet the demands of a successful market application. In this program, we will explore how new technologies become a viable and sustainable business.
For both programs, the morning master classes are led by distinguished professors. In the afternoon group sessions, an emphasis will be focused on an affordable and clean energy innovation, and transforming it into a final, marketable product.
(Prerequisite: Ent. 101)
Using affordable and clean technology as the focus topic, this advanced program will build upon the experience from Ent. 101 and guide students to build minimum viable product (MVP) including the processes of recruiting/forming a team, market research, using website, app as resources to build MVP followed with market validation. The students will also have opportunity to touch upon finance, startup budget and fundraising related topics.
Using affordable and clean technology as the focus topic, the program will practice how entrepreneurs build successful businesses by moving new technology from idea to eventual sales and distribution in today’s market. Lead by experts in the field, students collectively will perform patent/technology searching, deep research of relevant marketing and potential, market research on the streets with people from their communities, craft a better product that can improve the community, and train on how to better advance their proposal, communicate to their audience, persuade their investors and influence the community with the biggest possible impact.
