In this course students will work on launching their own business. Students will spend the term de-risking their business assumptions through various tasks, such as surveying their customer base, meeting with partners and competitors, building prototypes, and validating a market need. Students will learn the iterative process of how a start-up actually works by using the Lean Start-Up model of new-venture development. Finally, students will see how to rapidly iterate a product or service to build something customers will use and buy.

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
