Lesson Reviews

Lesson One Review:

Week 1: The Entrepreneur: Problems as opportunities. This class gave an introduction to the course and the learning outcomes. Keri gave an introduction to MaRS, problems as opportunities and SMART objectives. We did an in class exercise where we brainstormed everyday problems and how we could solve them this was really interesting as in our group we were able to come up with some problems and potential solutions. This really demonstrated that how problems can become opportunities and anyone can come up with a business idea!
