Capstone Venture Project BAA745


This unit is the last in a series of venture project units. It signifies the culmination of study towards the Master of Entrepreneurship and Innovation. The final project provides the opportunity to apply and extend the entrepreneurial theories and practices learned during the program. For this project you will develop and justify a comprehensive new venture or start-up business plan for your own venture that will be launched in the future. In contrast to the other project units studied in the MEI program, this project should be undertaken individually.

The Capstone Venture Project involves a substantive external investigation, literature search and reviews of the background for the chosen idea, obtaining a clear understanding of the new ventures problems that have to be overcome, familiarisation with the context and market that new venture should be launched within, initial timeframe for the preparation and launch, and formulation of effective growth strategies.
