Develop insights on navigating the innovation process from idea generation to commercialization. Build knowledge on how to create strategies to bring innovations to market. Develop an innovation portfolio and business model canvas for your venture.

We establish a framework for examining the innovation process, and quickly transition into exploring how to successfully bring innovations to market. Key questions answered within the course include:

* What are the key indicators of innovation opportunities?
* What steps are critical for entrepreneurs to bring innovations to the marketplace?
* What innovation strategies are valuable for new ventures to establish and maintain a competitive advantage?
