Business (BUS)

This course takes the fundamentals of entrepreneurship and applies them to business cases and fieldwork. The course is divided into two sections: creating and pitching a new business concept and evaluating an existing entrepreneurial venture through fieldwork. The student works in a team to create, evaluate, and develop a concept for a new entrepreneurial venture for either a profit or non-profit mission. The student also engages in field work with an existing organization engaged in entrepreneurial activities. Organizations may be identified by the student or through client-based service providers (VT SBDC, VMEC, United Way, VBSR, etc.)
