CEE246 is a unique course geared toward developing entrepreneurial businesses (both start-ups and internal ventures). This team, project-based class teaches students how to exploit emerging materials science, engineering and IT technologies to radically apply innovation to the “real economy”–e.g., new products and services that produce real economic value for society as well as for the entrepreneurs.
With one-on-one support from seasoned industry mentors and influential guest speakers, the course guides students through the three key elements of new venture creation: identifying opportunities, developing business plans, and determining funding sources. The class culminates with business presentations to industry experts, VCs and other investors. The goal is to equip students with the knowledge and network to create impactful business ideas, many of which have been launched from this class.
