The module looks at start-ups as a process from identifying and evaluating opportunities to acquiring relevant human and monetary resources, building an organization, and managing a start-up. In addition to theories and concepts, relevant practical methods and procedures that support this process are taught.

In addition, participation is of interest to those who wish to supervise strategic changes in business models and/or spin-offs in established companies. Theoretically, the essential elements and process steps of a business start-up are shown, described in detail and approaches to the implementation of a start-up project are presented.
