This course involves on campus teaching. For students unable to come to campus there will be a remote option. See the Class Summary for more details.

This course gives participants an opportunity to further research and develop their knowledge of entrepreneurship and innovation, to apply and integrate it with their future careers, extending them through a self-directed study project that has personal impact for them. Participants undertake a project either individually or in small teams of up to three under the supervision of a faculty supervisor. There are several different kinds of projects that can be undertaken in this course:
(1) A substantial corporate innovation initiative developed for and in collaboration with the participant’s present organization
(2) The design, development and validation of a new venture proposal, including social ventures, to be presented by the participant in a pitch for resources to the local entrepreneurship ecosystem
(3) The design, validation and feasibility scoping of an innovative and sustainable solution to a serious social, urban or environmental challenge, to be presented by the participant to one or more relevant external agencies of government
(4) A substantial piece of research on policies, programs and infrastructure to enable greater participation in, and better quality outcomes from entrepreneurship and innovation activities across the economy generally
(5) Other kinds of projects may be considered, subject to approval by the course convenor.
