About the course

This highly-engaging seminar will focus on the new venture development process and the role of the entrepreneur in spotting opportunity - where creativity, innovation, and imagination can then deliver great new products and services to existing markets, or launch brand new global markets and industries.

It will provide a comprehensive review of how entrepreneurship opens up new ideas to address gaps in existing markets and industries – and the “8 Facets of New Ventures” that must be addressed in producing a professional business plan, whether for an independent or intra-corporate entrepreneur.

The Oxford seminar will review several high profile ‘classic’ entrepreneurial case examples – such as Apple, Cisco, Uber, VMware, and Tesla – to recent client-consulting ventures in food service, apparel, hi-tech, and telecomm IoT, reviewing and analyzing common themes and pathways to venture funding sources.
