MODULE TYPE: SDG11 


MODULE DESCRIPTION

In our everyday life we are exposed to stimuli which very often we are not able to identify. On the other hand we are often puzzled by ideas, but not sure if those ideas can generate a business out of it. This module is the matching link between opportunity recognition and focused idea generation. Tutors will guide students through the process following the logic:
Customer, Problem, Solution: the importance of identifying and following customer needs.
Creativity, lateral thinking, brainstorming techniques to identify the best solution to those needs.
Business modeling in a multicultural, volatile business environment to assess value creation and feasibility
How to create an “investor package”: what investors want to hear
Principles of idea presentation and pitching: a good presentation makes a good business idea better


LEARNING OUTCOMES

Giving students the ability to detect business opportunities in daily life, to focus on customer needs and to generate unconventional ideas which can turn into innovation.
