In this week we will introduce you to the basics of entrepreneurship.

Entrepreneurship can be defined as the pursuit of opportunities without regard to resources currently controlled. We use the logic of the entrepreneurial process and the toolbox of the Lean Startup Method to guide you through your entrepreneurial journey. We will focus on how to recognize, create and evaluate opportunities. You will learn about the key steps of setting up a venture. And then you will explore the nature of opportunities and how best to recognize and evaluate them.

In the next step we invite you to share with us and your fellow learners why you are interested in entrepreneurship.
