Welcome to Module 1! This module is Evidence-based Innovation. It might seem that brilliant ideas just pop into an innovator’s mind. Though that could happen, it is unlikely. Innovative solutions, the type that changes the world and improves lives, do not just happen. They are built on a deep understanding of evidence. Evidence is information gathered by being involved in the world around you. A key skill for any innovator is to be able to understand and use the tenants of evidence-based entrepreneurship. In this module, you will work with the tenets of evidence-based entrepreneurship as you look at how they are used for success.

Welcome to Module 3! This module is Problems Worth Solving. Not every problem needs a solution, and some problems need to be solved right away. Being able to judge a problem’s merit and find problems that need to be solved is part of the innovator’s toolkit. Problems need to be described and analyzed before they can have an approach or solution design. An entrepreneur must know how to Identify problems worth solving. In this module, you will work to identify a problem that is worth solving and in doing so, examine how other ventures have approached this stage of innovation.

Welcome to Module 4! This module is Intrapreneurial Pathways. Throughout this course, we’ve discussed entrepreneurship. Not everyone wants to or will work with a startup, so you may find that intrapreneurship may be a better fit for you. Intrapreneurship is a way of harnessing the innovator’s mindset and tools within an existing organization to create solutions. As you learn about this form of innovation, consider the hallmarks and values of intrapreneurship. In this module, you will examine the idea of intrapreneurship and how it adds value to organizations and ventures.
