Investigate how new technology can make or break a business

Learn how successful entrepreneurs combine technology and innovation to create thriving businesses.

During lectures and small-group discussions, you'll examine how new technologies, such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, biotechnology, robotics, and drones, generate both opportunities and challenges for start-ups and established firms.

And by studying and debating case studies, you'll explore the practices of successful innovators and the reasons why many innovative industries fail. You'll learn strategies for designing and leading innovative organizations and teams, how to fund and promote a business, and how to build and expand your personal network.

At the end of the course, you'll participate in a team competition to present the best innovation strategy for a business. You'll analyze and identify opportunities for the business to use new technologies, propose ways for the business to manage its growth, and recommend avenues for promoting a culture of innovation.
