participant survey:

Please respond to the following questions to the best of your ability. Participants are not chosen on the basis of the status or completion of their business plan and operations, so if a section does not apply or you have not yet undertaken it, instead include your plans for completing it. Aim to include 100-150 words per question.

What does entrepreneurship mean to you? Describe your commitment to entrepreneurship. have you ever thought of starting your own business, if so, for how long? What do you think you need to learn or know to be successful?

Do you hope to work for a company with an international reach, or would you prefer to stay domestically?

optional questions:

Do not worry if these do not apply to you, they are not required and are not factored into participant selection. They are asked so that instructors can have an idea of students’ business concepts prior to the start of class.

What opportunity have you identified, and why have you chosen to exploit it? Provide a brief description of your solution (your technology/product/service). What problem does your product, service or technology solve? How does your product, service or technology provide a solution to the problem?

Who will pay for this solution? i.e. who is your consumer? What is the growth in consumer demand and the relevant market and industry?
