Get clarification of key marketing concepts, methods, and strategic issues relevant for start-up and early-stage entrepreneurs and "intrapreneurs" who innovate, and turn ideas into profitable finished products.

Objective

More often than not, a new venture's success isn’t based on technology–it’s marketing. Marketing plays a crucial role in developing, producing, and selling products and services. It also guides recruiting efforts and helps raise capital. All the important questions asked by investors in early stage companies or decision makers in larger entrepreneurial focused organizations, are strategic marketing questions: Who is the customer? What problem do you solve for him? How big is the market? How quickly is it growing? Who are the competitors? What is your sustainable competitive advantage? And yet, many folks don't do the careful, pre-venture marketing, and it can prove to be a fatal mistake.

This course clarifies key marketing concepts, methods, and strategic issues relevant for start-up and early-stage entrepreneurs and early-stage entrepreneurs within larger established organizations. There's no universal marketing solution applicable to all entrepreneurial ventures, so we designed this course to help you develop a flexible way of thinking about marketing problems. You'll be better positioned to determine and apply the most innovative and appropriate solutions to your situation.
