Seeing Entrepreneurially OVERVIEW
Successful entrepreneurs introduce a product or service that satisfies customer needs in a better way than competitors at a price that is greater than the cost of creating and delivering that product or service. Based on the lectures and readings for the course to date, this assignment challenges you to explore how to fulfill customer needs in a competitive manner.
