Michigan Blue Venture Fund --- This action-based learning course introduces undergraduate students to practical and conceptual issues, tools, and skills they need in order to be a successful early-stage investor or entrepreneur who seeks early-stage funding. Students also increase the depth and quality of their qualitative and quantitative analytic skills and expand their capacity to make important, risky decisions in the face of incomplete and ambiguous information. Students learn by operating an actual early-stage investment fund that makes real investments in early-stage companies, and via traditional course methods. They practice working in and leading teams under time pressure to complete projects and produce high-quality deliverables.
