2 ± This is not a difficult class technically compared to your other classes, but teaches a different way of thinking. ± Students learn a tremendous amount of “real world” that they take with them wherever they go. This class has substantially affected students’ lives. ± Working in teams can be difficult because this is not a 0 1 class. You will be asked to lead and defend your position. The instructor will challenge you every step. ± You’ll find at times that you’re uncomfortable, but grading is not harsh and the instructor cares deeply about how you do and what you learn. ± You are expected to act entrepreneurially. Excuses are not easily accepted. ± If you have questions, ask. If you have concerns, voice them. If you have a better way to do it, suggest it. 3 EGN6640 - Erik Sander ± Introduction to Entrepreneurship ± Vision Idea generation and feasibility analysis ± Execution Business planning 4 EGN6640 - Erik Sander
