Course Details

Course Code: ENTR510 Course ID: 4823 Credit Hours: 3 Level: Graduate

The Accelerator is a dynamic learning and business development experience, unlike any class you will have had before. You start with your own creative ideas and, through the rigorous lean startup protocol, strive to determine the exact business model by which to launch and go to scale. The Accelerator model is based on lean startup and customer development principles (i.e., innovative business models, scientific approach, hypothesis testing, rapid iteration, minimum viable product, problem-solution fit, and customer discovery).
