This lecture focuses on start-ups and entrepreneurship, which are essential for the social implementation of technology and innovation.
In order for cutting-edge technologies created at universities/public institutions to be turned into products and services, start-ups, which are not existing companies, are often the innovators. This lecture provides basic knowledge of start-ups and a practical group exercise for undergraduate students who aim to initiate a business in the future, or who may be involved in or interested in the world. This lecture mainly deals with case presentations by external innovators/entrepreneurs.
This lecture aims to provide students with the mindset and a basic knowledge required for entrepreneurs and innovators.
