The Deep Dive into Entrepreneurship course is all about your start-up, establishing it, running it, and managing it. This course uses the  ”lean business platform” and the theory behind the "Lean Start-up" concept to give students the essential knowledge needed to either start their own business or join a start-up. Students will get hands-on skills, they can use in any start-up or to start their own business. Every student will practice these skills in-class by building a real start-up business based on their own idea. The course will also cover traditional new venture development and the entrepreneurial process (problem identification, innovation, business plans, fund raising and launching). In addition, the essential knowledge derived from entrepreneurship research covering proven keys to success, as well as scientific research about what it takes as an individual and a group to succeed in entrepreneurship will be included.  Learning outcomes
  • Learn useful basics of problem identification, idea formation & brainstorming, idea validation, risk assessment, launching, pricing and crowdfunding. 
  • Gain the latest knowledge from scientific research about startups, including definition of entrepreneurship and more.

Teaching and exam
The pedagogical approach of this summer school is an action-reflection theory, which means that we are always testing learning and theory through practical exercises. The teaching will be workshop based with a mix of short theoretical lectures, presentations of – and training in – tools, and reflection on the learning. In addition, you will work with and get inspiration from other participants and you will get the opportunity to work on your own projects as well.
The exam consists of: 1. Business Model Canvas and completed lean business platform portfolio.
 2. A 30 minute ”open for the campus” oral group presentation and discussion about the business idea. The groups consist of 3-4 persons.
