“Legal Considerations for Startups,” Starting Up a New Venture, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, March 2016, March 2017, October 2017, March 2018, October 2018, April 2021

An understanding of the critical issues related to starting up a new business is gained through team-based experiential learning. Small teams of students develop a comprehensive business plan that can be used to raise money for a new or relatively new venture. The business plans are eligible for submission to the Rensselaer Business Plan Competition. The experiential learning process is enhanced through team meetings with faculty and/or course advisers and through oral presentations to the entire class.
