Course objective
The course introduces entrepreneurship as an effective tool for implementing sustainable innovations. You will learn how to tackle the most pressing societal and environmental challenges of our time. In the interdisciplinary sessions that are facilitated by professors from multiple faculties at LMU Munich, University of Augsburg, and the CDTM, you will learn about impact as a guiding principle for entrepreneurship. We discuss which stakeholders are important for entrepreneurs and how impact can be holistically achieved and measured. Thanks to interactive digital classes, you will learn how sustainable business models are developed, as well as how startups are financed and sustained in the long term. You will develop an impact-oriented mind- and skillset over the course duration, gain a new holistic perspective on value creation and destruction, be conscious of the value of impactful innovations and be able to translate theory into practice. The impact-oriented knowledge you will gain can not only be applied in your own field of study or in your professional career, but also in your daily life.
