Building Real Companies- The New Entrepreneurship (IST 400/600 - New Ideas in Entrepreneurship) is a seminar class taught by University Professor Carl Schramm.
The goal of the course is to provide students with a practical understanding of the entrepreneurial process both from the policy perspective and from the practical perspective of starting a new business.
This will be a seminar in which student-professor dialog will be critical. Selected readings will inform students of what is empirically known about various key decisions in forming a new firm. Discussion relating to the readings sets the stage for students to examine topics of particular personal interest.
