Venture Planning in an Electronic Age

Grade 12 College Level

Prerequisite: None

This course will focus on the development of a professional venture plan with specific focus on an e-commerce opportunity. In making the plan, they will consider available resources, analyse the potential market base, identify legal requirements, available financing, identify the management skills and technology that would be required in carrying out their plan.

The students will be encouraged to tailor the e-commerce venture to a realistic opportunity. We stress the fact the age has no bearing on success in the 21st Century. We will introduce examples of young entrepreneurs who have taken a calculated, measured risk and succeeded in business. It is our goal to encourage students to explore their pathways for success.
