Addressing some of the early questions that entrepreneurs must ask themselves before beginning on their journey:
* What are your goals for your enterprise? (Business, nonprofit, social enterprise)
* Will your business be focussed on profit? Social benefit? Will it be a consulting practice? A service company? A product company?
* What are the different requirements and resources necessary for your selected enterprise model?
* What type of financing should you target: equity, debt, grant funding or a combination of all three?
This is the lecture that establishes the framework for the rest of the course and gets entrepreneurs on their way!
