Course description

In this class, students will learn the fundamentals of energy innovation and entrepreneurship, how innovation and entrepreneurship in energy differs from that in other fields, and practice these skills by either developing a business and non-market strategy for an idea of their own, or build upon energy technological innovations developed by CMU faculty or scientists and engineers in federal laboratories. The resulting strategy can, if students wish, be submitted for competitions that typically take place each spring at CMU, Pittsburgh, and throughout the United States.
