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 our 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 well-known and might even be familiar to some of us from our own personal experience. However, the world of life sciences, biotechnology, and Clean-technology have 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. In addition to frontal lectures, students will meet with guest speakers and entrepreneurs from the field, analyze case studies and gain hands-on experience in the practical work of setting up an enterprise.
