Course Description

The APEX Business Startup course would connect students with a network of mentors to learn about topics such as the business model canvas, market research, design thinking, financing and funding models, patent support, and planning for successful scaling and growth. Presenting a final “shark tank” style pitch would be the culmination at the end of the course.
