MGMT 4080 Applied Technology Ventures Class (Spr 2009, Spr 2010)

I and a colleague have developed a new class on technology entrepreneurship at the University of Minnesota. We leveraged our engineering backgrounds to create this class where we offer students a chance to work on university technologies with some commercialization potential. We offered this class for the first time in Spring 2009. In our first year we started small but had two groups that successfully created start-ups–one based on university technology on herbicide remediation. The company (Newater) was formed and is on its way to generating revenue by licensing university IP. This year we have more students and greater potential for new start-ups. We intedn to build a community leveraging local resources at the Carlson School. We intend to collaborate with entrepreneurship educators throughout the world through our open source learning website (www.techventuresource.org) that enables students to participate outside of class, collaborate on ideas, and customize the class as per their interests and background.
