Warum dieses Modul?

hier die Antwort

Entrepreneurship and digitalization drive economic growth and societal progress. The intersection of these two areas has therefore become a central theme of interest in both academia and practice. The focus of interest is on empowering individuals to develop new technology-driven business ideas and implement them entrepreneurially.

This module offers an introduction to the dynamic field of digital entrepreneurship, guiding students through the process of ideating and building a new digital venture. Students will explore key concepts and methodologies essential for the pre-launch, launch, and post-launch phases of a digital business. The course integrates practical examples to illustrate these principles and provides deeper insights into specific application areas within digital entrepreneurship.

Next to the theoretical content, students ideate a business idea, incrementally develop a business plan, and present it to their peers. The synchronous and groupwork is integral part of the module and forms one part of the assessment. The other part of the assessment is one-hour written exam at the end of the semester. For more detailed information about the exam format, please refer to the module description.

The module is divided into five units, each focusing on a different aspect of entrepreneurship.

Unit 2 'Envisioning the Business' explores the critical aspects of conceptualizing a digital venture, from formulating a business idea to developing a sustainable business model and creating a strategic roadmap.
