New Venture Creation
Our new venture creation class is for student entrepreneurs who have established traction in their venture, measured through sales, investment, and/or IP.
In both our new venture and accelerator classes, we develop teams around each venture, and ensure that each venture is supported with a mix of sales, finance, engineering, and industry-relevant skills.
Students are exposed to the academic theory of new venture creation, develop and refine their revenue models, and are in some cases supported financially to conduct field research to validate their hypothesis. Where relevant, we incorporate expertise from the University's faculties in life sciences, exact sciences, and engineering.
In the 2018-19 academic year, students in our new venture creation class are developing and gaining funding for a tele-medicine solution, a solar-energy peer-to-peer technology, and two neuro-science based ventures each based on over a decade of research.
