Entrepreneurs’ Toolkit: From Idea to Launch
Intensive workshops – Apart from attending core courses and elective courses from JSBF and across JGU, students of the B.A. (Hons.) Finance & Entrepreneurship programme also have to undertake intensive workshops. These workshops are aimed at building essential skills necessary for entrepreneurs such as making business pitches, building excel models, identifying opportunities and addressing them through different business models, commercialising various technologies, etc. In addition to these workshops, students also have to complete 12 credits worth of workshops aimed at teaching them about the various steps of incubating their own start-ups (2 workshops of 6 credits each). Through these workshop, students will be guided through the different stages of setting up their own venture, identifying opportunities, developing products/services to fulfil these opportunities, raising finances, and taking the product/service to the market.
Students are encouraged to engage in co-curricular activities as part of their semester breaks. Of these activities, it is mandatory that students undertake at least one internship, preferably with start-ups. Students will be assisted by the JSBF Office of Industry Interface and the JGU Office of Career Services in obtaining these internships. During these start-up internships, students get to work at start-ups and get first-hand experience in that environment, and deeply understand the challenges faced by the founders, and the opportunities available for growth. They will be also able to obtain more hands-on experience as compared to working in an established company where they might be given task pertaining to only one management function. By contrast, due to the nature of the firms, start-up internships could provide students with experience to exploit opportunities as well as troubleshoot challenges from across different management functions.
CAPSTONE (Computer Simulation) – The Capstone course is a computer simulation where students will apply the skills they have picked up in each of the courses they have attended in the previous 5 semesters and in the 6th semester. Through a computer simulation programme, students will have the chance to test the different theories and skills that they have learnt in an environment which simulates the real-world. This will be a simulation which runs over the duration of the semester in which the organisations run by students will be presented with several opportunities and challenges with students being required to respond to them. Over the course of this simulation, students will be able to see how the decisions they have taken affect their organisations’ performance. While participating in the computer simulation, students will also be debriefed at key intervals so that they are able to understand the impact of decisions taken by them or their classmates.

The aforementioned list of courses/workshops/seminars is an indicative list subject to minor modifications based on student interest and institutional requirements.
Although students are encouraged to launch their own start-ups, it is not a mandatory programme requirement.
Promising ideas (basis an internal screening process) will be supported by JGU through cash support for starting their own company, extended mentorship, and access to global professional network(s).
The costs involved in starting a company will be borne by the students involved, unless the project has been recommended for a cash prize based on an internal screening process.
