Entrepreneurial skills are highly sought after, not only by start-ups but also by large corporations, charities, and government departments across the world. As such, entrepreneurship is an indispensable skill for the world of business in the 21st Century.

The truth, however, is that much of what has been written about entrepreneurship is just plain wrong.

Take for example the popular belief that only a ‘certain type of person’ can become a successful entrepreneur, or that a single ‘great man’ builds a business empire. The implication then is that if you are not exactly like they are that you’ll never make it, so you should play it safe and focus on being a good employee.

In reality, all types of people can, and do, become successful entrepreneurs, many of them working in teams of like-minded individuals whose skills complement one another.

This course will give you a world-class introduction to the exciting and creative world of entrepreneurship and show you what you need to do to behave like a successful entrepreneur and develop an idea into a successful business venture.
