SRPP-UH 1614 Entrepreneurship: (Formerly SRPP-AD 122) Whether as heroes or agents of creative destruction, entrepreneurs and their innovations have had a transformative influence on modern economic growth and the wealth of nations. The first part of the seminar introduces the classical and contemporary writings on the rise of entrepreneurial capitalism in the West and the global diffusion of modern entrepreneurial spirit and firm. Classical approaches pioneered the study of modern entrepreneurship in its rational orientation to profit making through innovative activity. Contemporary approaches shift the emphasis away from analysis of individual attributes and agency to focus on examining the role of social networks, organizational forms, and institutional environment in facilitating entrepreneurial activity. The last part of the seminar will focus on research on entrepreneurship using secondary sources and data available through the internet.
LAW-UH 2120J Law in Entrepreneurship (Offered J-Term 2018): Formerly LAW-AD 224J) Law in Entrepreneurship seeks to prepare students for the interconnectedness of global startup organizations and the internal and external legal environments.

The course will provide students with the fundamental and practical knowledge of legal competitiveness for enterprises and will introduce students to a broad range of legal issues encountered by founders and business executives and will also help students develop a set of analytical perspectives for making judgments when such issues arise. Students will act in the roles of key decision-makers or their advisors and solve problems related to the development of the competitive advantage of the enterprise in a given market. While the chief concern of those who create and manage businesses of any kind is often in the mechanics of the business itself, law is an integral part of running the machine that is an enterprise. It is law that sets certain standards for the setting in which a business operates and provides the framework to codify the business’ own standards. Thus, insight into the law becomes a significant tool in the business leader’s repertoire. It allows you to be mindful of the business’ limits and knowledgeable about in what manner the business can be strengthened.

Moving from a good idea to a real company requires not only an understanding of the issue, but also an understanding of the targeted customer(s), the product, the pricing model, funding mechanisms, board relations, customer acquisition, and much more.
