ENFB13-300: Entrepreneurial Growth

Description

Most new ventures start small. Although many ventures will remain small, entrepreneurial ventures aim to achieve rapid, sustained growth. Such growth can create problems for owners and managers if the necessary resources, structures and systems are not in place. Also, the challenges of identifying and capitalizing on a high potential opportunity differ significantly from those of growing a newly formed venture. This subject examines the problems and issues faced by entrepreneurs beyond the initial start-up of a new venture. It takes an applied approach to the management of entrepreneurial growth, providing students the opportunity to learn and apply the principles, theories and frameworks to both business cases and real organisations.
