It is commonly agreed that entrepreneurs are people who are good at, and derive intense satisfaction from, finding ways to improve on the status quo. Whether it is a specific new product or service, or a whole new way of doing business, entrepreneurs are adept at seeing the ways things are and then finding ways to make them better.
At PCI, we help advance this mindset by embedding it in all our courses, workshops, and projects.
After an appropriate mindset comes a practical map of the entrepreneurial landscape. Budding entrepreneurs should develop a good sense of the different kinds of entrepreneurship that exist, including for-profit entrepreneurship, social entrepreneurship, and various mixed models. Case studies of entrepreneurs provide students accelerated experience with this model.
Current PCI courses that spent time drawing maps of the entrepreneurial landscape include: Entrepreneurship Explored (an enterprise focus) and Application Lab (a product focus). View the full list of current PCI courses.
After mindset and map come method. Entrepreneurship involves specific skills, both technical skills related to a specific opportunity and general skills related to building enterprises.
Current PCI courses that help build relevant skills include Design Thinking (user experience), Entrepreneurship Explored (organizational templates), Application Lab (digital prototypes), and Understanding Financial Technology (fintech).
