This mostly online webinar class explores business-learning fundamentals. Based on the nine basic building blocks of the Business Model Canvas, SEA encourages students to move products from the lab into the market. Students talk to potential customers, partners, and competitors, and each student team presents its findings each week. Business-learning fundamentals are delivered online, so the two workshops focus on face-to-face interactions between students, their mentors, and the instructional team. The class culminates in students giving their final executive business-plan presentation and story-making video.
