This course will prepare students to identify and evaluate commercial opportunities for emerging technologies. The emphasis will be on the design and evaluation of business models and on the methods necessary for rapid yet rigorous analysis of these models. Projects will span multiple disciplines and markets. The Center for Entrepreneurship, through its interaction with students and faculty, will tap into a ever widening network of entrepreneurs and experts in the field. This will enable us to develop preliminary business models and evaluate possible commercial opportunities with the ultimate objective of selecting promising opportunities for commercial development.

Students will work in interdisciplinary teams yet are also expected to contribute to the success of the other teams. Reflecting the cross-disciplinary and integrative nature of the work, this course will be taught concurrently by three faculty members, who are, in part, active Venture Capitalists, including the Ann Arbor based RPM Ventures group (http://www.rpmvc.com/).
