The purpose of this subject is to study topics on entrepreneurship and innovation. The subject closely examines the definition of an entrepreneur as an innovator who recognises and seizes opportunities; converts those opportunities into workable/marketable ideas; adds value through effort, money and skills; assumes the risk of the competitive marketplace to implement these ideas; and realises the rewards from these efforts. Innovation is ultimately the lifeblood of enterprises, in that it is concerned with the capability to effectively introduce new products and services, new or substantively improved processes or other major initiatives into existing and new enterprises. The subject is systematically organised around the creation, assessment, growth development, and operation of new and emerging ventures. Topics include introduction to design thinking, creativity, intellectual property, business models, innovation capability, new product/process technology introduction and innovation culture. The subject is geared towards preparing students in ultimately being able to understand the principles behind a successful product creation and launch.
