Submit a 1500 words paper based on an interview with an entrepreneur you know. The entrepreneur could be a family member, friend, or other person. You will be assessed on your ability to elicit and document detailed insights from the interview, which can be linked with our class discussions on entrepreneurship. You will also be assessed on the quality of your writing, clarity of discussion, and effective organization of your work.
Note that all written work must be completed in a professional business format and follow basic principles of effective written communication that is neat, well organized, clearly written, and free from grammatical, punctuation, and word choice errors. Professional work always utilizes introductory and conclusion paragraphs with headings that reflect a well-developed outline. Use citations and references with proper formatting.
Below are examples of questions you should ask the entrepreneur (** the questions marked with the asterisk symbols are reasonable open-ended and can snowball to additional questions and insights):
**What was your first business idea and what did you do with it?
How did you make your first sale?
How did you get credibility quickly?
How did you distinguish yourself from your competitors?
How did you deal with failure?
**How did you get funded or what creative strategies did you use to execute on minimal cash flow?
How did you test your assumptions about your business ideas?
**If you could time travel back to day one of your startup and have 15min with your former self to communicate any lessons you’ve acquired with the intention of saving yourself mistakes and heart ache, what would you tell yourself?
