Science and Entrepreneurship in New Zealand, Part II
This course is designed for students wanting to gain an understanding of the commercialisation of scientific ideas and devices. Building upon the skills taught in SCIE301, SCIE302 will cover topics such as: what is innovation and its link to commercial success, the importance of management and governance for start-up businesses. Through the course assignments students will have the opportunity to learn how to “sell” an idea to potential investors. Case studies will be used to compare and contrast solutions to common problems and longer-term outcomes in technology start-ups. Access to a DVD player, computer and or ipod is essential for this course.
