The entrepreneur must be effective working with “smart money.” Students learn management techniques, organizational processes, and collaboration models that contribute to success as an entrepreneurial executive in a venture-backed enterprise. Covers what the venture investor looks for; evolution of the entrepreneur’s role as the CEO; and board responsibilities, leadership, and behavior. Also, recognizing the key challenges and typical mistakes that lead to failure in the early-stage, venture-backed company and how to prevent them.
