The act of being an entrepreneur is taking an idea and turning it into reality. There are two types of entrepreneurs - those that have a myriad of ideas and those that can't think of one idea. This course, Idea generation, is dedicated to helping the student identify opportunities for a new business venture by either deciding on one idea they have or helping to create ideas. The course starts with recognizing various ways to come up with a new idea and ends with outlining a plan to take the idea to reality.
