Entrepreneurship and New Venture Planning introduces participants to the process of identifying new business opportunities, researching and developing a business concept and analysing the resources and strategies necessary to implement it. The course draws on all of the core disciplines of management – concept design, business model innovation, marketing, financing, organisational development and strategy. Developing a new venture concept thus provides a vehicle for integrating participants’ learning across the business disciplines. The course is delivered by means of lectures, workshops and experiential learning in which participants take 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 and are encouraged to participate in additional extension activities across the ACT’s new venture development networks.
