Course Overview

International research has identified what's needed to be a successful enterprise. The EntreComp framework details 15 competencies that when combined provide a roadway to success. So that's where we start.

With a focus on 21st century practices such as agile and design thinking, and inspired by the lean start-ups on the West Coast of America, you will learn techniques used by social media influencers, games developers, artisan creators, and disruptive activists.

You will also learn the principles applied by the effectuation school of entrepreneurs. This means you will learn what your customers and service-users LOVE about your offering, rather than presume you know before you start.

The course will initially guide you to create a vivid vision. It is this vision that will lead you to create value in forms that are not just economic, but also personal, social and cultural. The evidence shows that enterprises that create fun, social justice, influence, and harmony are found to be more resilient and successful in the longer term than others.


Where we introduce the understanding of seeing the chances that surround us every day. Students are introduced to several practical activities that promote an oblique view of the world that exposes them to opportunities.
