Entrepreneurship and New Venture Creation is an online unit provided by Open Universities Australia in association with RMIT University that aims to teach you ‘the entrepreneurial mindset’, giving you the confidence and ability to take on new business ventures, whether as an entrepreneur or on behalf of an organisation. The unit explores the importance of strategy, research, and the ways in which economic development can be crucial for a new business to succeed.
To begin with, the unit covers the definition of entrepreneurship, and how the concept is indelibly linked to the spirit of innovation. Following this, you will learn how to go about creating a new venture, and will learn some of the legal and financial pitfalls you may encounter along the way. Additionally, you will learn how to generate an effective business plan to gain investment, learn the structure of deal making, and how to manage a growth enterprise in its early stages.
Ultimately, Entrepreneurship and New Venture Creation will provide you with the strategic know-how and business insights needed to enable you to wow investors when it comes to the pitching stage.
