You recognise the skills of your own internal entrepreneurship and use them to develop the course business idea.

Based on your experience, observations and the knowledge you have acquired, you form a conception of market needs or demand in response to which you develop your own turnkey solution/business concept (service/product concept).

You act in a multidisciplinary small group in which you reflect upon and assess the business opportunities of the idea and share their opportunities for success with other students in the course.
