Spring 2010 Schedule

This schedule covers NV 2 (New Ventures: Strategy Development, Spring 1 & 2). The schedule is subject to revision.

The class meets Wednesdays, 4:00 - 6:15 in the Lilly Classroom at Fuqua.

Class meetings that are designated "Workshop" are presentations and class discussions led by a faculty member or outside speaker on the topic at hand.

Class meetings that are designated "Checkpoint Presentations" are opportunities for all the teams in the P4E to give 10 - 15 minute update presentations on their work on the topic at hand.

It is expected that all teams will schedule regular meetings with their faculty advisors and business mentors in addition to regular class meetings.
