This subject aims to help founders appreciate their entrepreneurial purpose, integrate their profile, build their resilience, and learn about alternative and lesser-known governance models. Founding a venture requires imagination, courage, and strength of character. Founders need to identify their own 'why' and 'how' to cradle their idea so that they build a business that suits their character, team, and market need. With the aim of understanding and developing their own motivation, inner workings and capabilities, candidates learn entrepreneurial and research practices, mindsets, and ethics that inspire creative endeavours in 21st Century complexities. This subject combines purpose, resilience training and systems thinking to help founders find a governance model and not run out of steam.
