Welcome to Module 1! This module is Getting Started. Entrepreneurs and innovators have a very specific mindset and processes they use to approach their work. Thinking like an entrepreneur is your first step to creating valuable solutions. In this module, you’ll learn about the processes that entrepreneurs use, the work that they do, and look at their specific ventures and stories. There are 7 C’s of technology entrepreneurship. You’ll learn about them briefly in this module and dig deeper into the first 2 of them in future readings. These 7 C’s set the stage for innovation, which is a process that harnesses specific ways of thinking, methods, and skills. In this module, you will learn to interpret the ASU technology methodology as you develop your understanding of entrepreneurship and innovation and the steps to design an innovative product.

Welcome to Module 4! This module is How Will You Change the World? How will you change the world? That may feel like a big and heavy question. However, it’s at the heart of every innovation. Changing the world does not mean a grand sweeping change felt by many. It can be a small change that improves the lives and work of those around you. No matter what your goal is, it is the change that matters, not the product. The product you build is a natural outgrowth from understanding your customers, their pain points, and what you can do to create a better experience for them. As you begin to think like an entrepreneur, you will be able to predict how you will apply the ASU technology entrepreneurship methodology and mindset. In this module, you examine the steps of the entrepreneurship methodology and how it is used in innovative ventures.
