New Entrepreneurship and International Business Case Studies completed
Congratulations to graduate business students and recent grads Karen Bender and Helen Shteynberg. They did outstanding work, respectively, on the Acumeny and Sleepbox case studies. These will be used in my International Entrepreneurship and Managing New Ventures courses next semester. Both cases were just signed off by the entrepreneurs last week.
Our next projects will be to study a concrete company where 100% of its sales are in a different country. The next one will be a new company leveraging optical technology and finally what happens to a “start-up” its team after it’s sold to a larger entity. (Many thanks to Steve Snyder for his help with some of these projects, by the way).
