Develop an understanding of new business ventures from initial concept through company formation and operation. Particular emphasis will be placed on personal character assessment, market research, resources and skills required to “validate” an initial concept into a successful new venture.
 Understand the wide range of new venture financing options available to entrepreneurs, and fit for their plans: micro-financing, family, angel investment, corporate and private equity venture capital, and emerging new investment vehicles such as online “crowd financing,”
 Create a concise, succinct business plan “executive summary,” following the Guy Kawasaki “10-20-30” rule of thumb, including pro forma financial projections.
 Demonstrate an ability to confidently and effectively communicate the “executive summary” findings and conclusions, and to defend them to an audience of informed peers, as if they were potential investors or stakeholders in the new venture.

Learn to explore the future! Make better choices in your life. Or make your work more fun or easier through better preparation.
Do you notice that the changes in the world are going faster and faster? Are you running behind the facts or would you prefer to choose yourself? Technology is gaining more and more influence. Will you let that all just happen to you? Of course not. Technology can also make your life easier. You must know how. Together we will discover how we can make your life more enjoyable, easier or more interesting by exploring your future. If you keep doing what you did, you keep the results you are used to. But if you want more or better or different, how are you going to achieve that? What do you achieve with it? - You are better prepared for the future - You can apply for a new job more easily - You can better understand the usefulness of certain subjects in your studies, which gives you more motivation - Your company responds better to new developments than your competitors - Everyone wants to talk to you at network meetings, because you have something interesting to say. Who is this suitable for? - You are still in school but you have doubts about study or work after school - You have been working for a while, but you feel that there is more to you than comes out now. You just don't know how to change that. - You haven't been working for a while, but you want to get back to work. How do you get a nice job that really suits you? - You get crazy about all beeps and notifications but only get stressed out of it. How do you arrange all that technology so that you benefit from it? - In your work you notice that little has changed in the last three years. Everything is exactly as it was then, while technology is racing past. How do you get your department or your company involved in innovation? How can you take advantage of everything that you can find online nowadays for almost nothing? As Commissioner of the Future, I have been helping people and companies for many years to better prepare for the rapidly changing world. My focus is on technology, on a human scale. So don't implement very large and complicated software systems or purchase all kinds of machines. No, it could be smarter. Because of this I work in different fields, I can let you learn from the discoveries of others. In addition, I read more than 50 books a year on various topics related to new technology, science, innovation and management. You benefit from it without having to read them all yourself.
