entrepreneurship AR0131 | q3

This elective course AR0131 is developed for students (either architecture, urbanism, technology, or management) who like to investigate the opportunities for starting a venture in the built environment or want to develop an entrepreneurial attitude in taking on exciting challenges in the built environment.
In this course, students are guided in developing their ideas about a self-owned venture (design-firm, innovator, service provider, project management expert, etc.). 
A venture that gives them freedom for personal development, pursuing personal goals. Within the course, the student’s competencies are central and joint work is being done on the development of an entrepreneurial plan, making use of an entrepreneurial mindset. The course is provided by a team of teachers with an entrepreneurial background from the faculty of ‘architecture and the built environment’ complemented with teachers from the ‘Delft Centre for entrepreneurship’. The 2019-2020 Course Guide can be found here

what students say...

”For me, it was namely about gaining skills. Although my chosen venture for this course may not be what I desire to do with my future, it has given me skills that will accelerate my entrepreneurial career in other ventures!”

”This course might be the first course where it’s not about a grade to me! I did not mind to put in work, because I was really eager to learn more about Entrepreneurship.”

roadmap

The students will be fed with theory, inspirational lectures, coaching and skills to become aware if they would like to be an entrepreneur.
Every week a talk from the field will hopefully inspire the students to think about what entrepreneurship in Architecture and the Built Environment can be, or in general.
The students will be challenged by doing assignments in groups and individual. At the end of the course, each student has developed an idea to a business plan and final pitch. The student will maybe be thrilled to be an entrepreneur in the end, maybe not. More information can be found here in the online studyguide.
