Statement of Purpose

Since I am planning to become involved in new ventures, now or down the lane, it is imperative for me to understand how to identify and assess meaningful entrepreneurial opportunities from a business and personal perspective and to prepare for the decisions that I would be facing both before and during my involvement with new ventures. Moreover I need to learn the tools and frameworks with which I can assess potential outcomes and avoid common mistakes or pitfalls as a young entrepreneur. Plus I would like the course to answer some of the questions by comparing the advantages and demerits of starting a company now, or work elsewhere first and starting later? To be a solo founder, or should I try to attract co‐ founders? And if yes how should we split the roles; and, the equity? “ etc.
