The purpose of this subject is to develop skills of running an entrepreneurial venture in a simulated real-life environment. Teams will be responsible for the running of a small-scale garage project for a full day during the last week of semester 1. Learning will involve putting lean startup and design thinking principles in action. The subject will also teach team development skills in team selection, structure, roles and team norm and process development. Reflexive exercises (such as a design diary) will heighten self-awareness as entrepreneurial decision makers.
