ENTREP 325: Engineering Entrepreneurship

Quarter Offered

Fall: Mondays, 6 – 9 p.m. CT, Evanston


Startup Accounting & Finance: ENTREP 330


This experiential course is a capstone option for the Farley undergraduate minor in entrepreneurship. It is also a valuable course for graduate students in engineering fields. The goal of the course is to introduce students to innovation-driven entrepreneurship, a process by which emergent technology serves as the catalyst for new venture formation. In partnership with Northwestern’s Innovation and New Ventures Office, this course challenges student teams to develop strategies for commercializing cutting-edge technologies. Each year, the course focuses on a significant innovation space.

While the area of focus for the fall 2022 section is still being determined, the general model will remain the same: the technological innovations that anchor student projects will be sourced from labs at Northwestern.
