Starting a business: realise your vision

University of Leeds via FutureLearn

Overview

If you dream of starting your own business, or are simply interested in the process of how ideas and visions become businesses, then this two-week course is for you.

We will help you spot when an idea is genuinely a good business opportunity and then take you through the steps of how to turn it into a successful business. You will learn about the resources needed, how to target the right customers and the range of finance options available.

This interactive course will help you understand and navigate the numerous challenges and critical decisions that entrepreneurs face as they go through the process of starting a business. You will do this through the eyes of enterprising students and graduates who have successfully started their own business, using video case studies, real life business plans and plenty of discussion. Throughout the course, you will be supported by university academics and experienced advisors, who will explain underlying principles and offer expert opinion.

You can join in by sharing ideas and discussing your own thoughts with other learners and the mentors. You can also interact using polls to guess the course of action taken by the entrepreneurs at key points in their business development journey. Join this course to start your own journey to starting a business.
