Why Students Take ITP-496
ITP496x is a capstone course in conjunction with BAEP 496 – The Digital Startup Launch Pad to complete the Minor in Innovation: The Digital Entrepreneur offered to undergraduate students. This is an intense project based course in launching a startup offered to undergraduate students. In just seven weeks, we will work on implementing the concept that was conceived by your team in BAEP496. In this class you will:
• Implement your startup idea
• Develop a customer acquisition plan
• Develop a financial and operational model
• Develop a pitch deck
• Present your idea and product to a team of investors
This course is an excellent chance to practice taking a startup idea from concept to reality. You will be working in a team on your product/service and your product can be an Internet or mobile product. The teaching team is committed to treating each team and idea as a real start up, so the work will be intense. If you do not have a passionate and overwhelming urge to start a business or launch a product or service, this class will not be a fit.
In addition to the course instructors, a team of serial entrepreneurs will mentor students.
You have to enroll in BAEP 496 and ITP496 in the same semester.
