New Venture Creation builds insights and skills in the tools and processes by which new business ventures are created by entrepreneurs. The course introduces participants to the process of identifying new business opportunities, researching and developing an innovative business concept and business model, and analysing the resources and strategies necessary to implement it in the form of a new venture. 

The course is delivered through workshops, in-class exercises and experiential learning in which participants work in small teams taking on the role of new venture proponents.  At the end of the course, participants present their business concepts to an examiners' panel - representing hypothetical investors or other stakeholders. Participant teams are actively mentored by the course lecturer. Exercises and assignments are designed to encourage participants to engage pro-actively with the ACT's new venture creation ecosystem.
