Session I: Recognizing and Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities

This workshop will focus on the reasons to be an entrepreneur as well as the benefits and costs of becoming an entrepreneur. We'll explore how entrepreneurs find opportunities to start new businesses by creatively exploiting change in our works and recognizing opportunities where others might see problems. We will review the paths to small business ownership and finally discuss how to create a business from an opportunity. This includes finding a competitive advantage and exploring the feasibility of a business idea as well as determining the value of a business. These topics are important first-steps for new venture creation. Students and community members with an interest in starting a business are encouraged to attend.
