ENTRE 579: Grand Challenges for Entrepreneurs

Grand Challenges for Entrepreneurs explores big problems and opportunities facing society, ranging from healthcare and education, to poverty. The course examines how solutions to these massive challenges can be researched, validated, and implemented using such entrepreneurial tools such as design thinking, business models, and lean entrepreneurship.

Students in the class will develop an entrepreneurial mindset; when others see insurmountable problems, entrepreneurs look for opportunities to use technology and innovative thinking to solve real world problems. An entrepreneurial perspective is also a wonderful way of thinking in order to tackle new opportunities in entrepreneurship, whether it is in government, NGOs or for-profit companies.

 

The class is open to ALL students on Monday, November 19th at 8:00am. You can email mbaregis@uw.edu with your add code request at that time.
