Green Entrepreneurship- Entrepreneurship in the Cleantech Industry – From Idea to Start-Up

About the course:

Even the best idea needs someone that will be able to realize and fulfill its full business potential. This process is not as simple as it might look (even if very common in some places). For an idea or technology to be successfully realized, it is necessary to carefully combine and coordinate between a number of factors and critical steps such as: IP protection (patent writing, for example), proper evaluation of the market need and market potential; writing a comprehensive and applicable business plan; raising capital, establishing a company, recruiting people and most of all, proper and professional management.

So far, apparently, all of this is well-known and might even be familiar to some of us from own personal experience. However, the world of life sciences, biotechnology and Clean-technology has unique characteristics that make entrepreneurship in these areas so special and significantly different from other businesses, including hi-tech and even the medical device industry. These differences and uniqueness are the subject matter of this course.

The course will deal with the challenges faced by entrepreneurs and executives in the Green Technology industry in its various aspects and segments (e.g., water technology, agricultural biotechnology, alternative energy, environmental sustainability etc.). Students will be exposed to the various critical issues involved in establishing and managing a successful venture in the field of clean technology. This course will provide you with a platform for understanding Israeli creativity, and help you to discover the entrepreneurial spirit that has built Israel’s worldwide reputation as the “Startup Nation”.
