Description

'This course covers the critical role of marketing for entrepreneurs and start-up companies as they attempt to define and carve out a market for a new company, product or service. We will examine through both class discussion and case study how marketing must infiltrate the entire organization beginning with the concept, the business plan and through the early stage development phase. Moreover, we will discuss the creation of the new venture marketing plan, the budgeting and human resource allocation process and its integration into the business plan. We will also look at tactics from guerilla marketing through mass media executions, the potential ROI for both and their influence on the ultimate success of the enterprise.'
