Abstract

This paper presents the design and implementation of a class for teaching software entrepreneurship. The class focused on teaching students the basics entrepreneurial venture development and how these processes relate, specifically, to a software venture. This paper presents the overall instructional plan of the course and discusses each of the course’s components. The implementation of the project component is discussed, in particular, in detail. The design and implementation challenges that were encountered are discussed.

This course was run in Spring of 2020 and started as an in-classroom course, later transitioning to an online course due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The outcomes of the course are discussed. Possible future enhancements are considered.
