Second part of the Innovation Lab sequence. This new experiential course is targeted to students who have business concepts that have been tested to determine that there is a compelling product-market fit. Innovation Lab II will focus on fine-tuning the business model, building out financial projections and preparing investor pitches. A significant portion of the workload for this course will occur outside of the classroom. Students must be prepared to test and validate their business model hypotheses by engaging with potential customers and industry experts. Within the classroom, students will be encouraged to share learning experiences and help other student teams. The course work will be supplemented by guest speakers who are experts in functional areas related to the business model canvas. In addition, students will have access to a pool of alumni and local mentors who can assist in the development of their businesses.
Student teams can be composed of students from other parts of the university, but at least one member of the team must be enrolled at Kellogg.Students continuing from KIEI 940-0 need approval from Linda Darragh; students who have not been in KIEI 940-0 need to contact Tom Parkinson
