94663 Navigating Entrepreneurial Ecosystems

8cp; availability: all enrolled UTS undergraduate students


Behind every product or service is an organisation or initiative. Those initiatives have a purpose and are situated in a context. This subject explores such contexts, usually defined by an industry and geography. The emphasis is on connecting with entrepreneurial support organisations, such as incubators, accelerators, government, and funders. Students work in teams to explore a context of their choice; perhaps related to where they want their next career move to be. This subject guides students to develop a proposal to introduce a new initiative in that context in a way that it is inclusive and enhances the ecosystem. Students have the opportunity to interact with key stakeholders and start building professional networks. Overall, this subject provides students with the practical skills to grow and utilise networks to initiate change.
