Expanding International Reach: Managing Risk and Opportunities in Foreign Markets

In today’s digital landscape, businesses are “born global.” This is a game-changer for micro and small businesses, as they can instantly access the global digital commons and leverage an infinite amount of resources-- at little or no cost.

AI, Cloud-based tools, the sharing economy, social media and e-commerce have enabled the growth of agile, scalable and dynamic new businesses. Collaborative networks and open sourced platforms have revolutionized what “traditional” businesses can do to grow and innovate.

This course is for risk-takers and entrepreneurs looking to engineer a small business from an idea to a functional reality. It also offers a learning experience for corporate thinkers looking to apply fast, nimble and creative approaches to jump-start their existing organizations.

This course will focus on the high-level formulation, exploration and validation of a business idea, and how to turn that idea into a functional, scalable and defendable micro-national business. Emphasis will be on Asia as well as emerging market opportunities.

TOPIC COVERAGE

This course will address the following questions:

  • Tapping into collaborative networks and ecosystems to research, test and validate ideas
  • Leveraging platforms and Apps
  • Utilizing digital micro-finance, credit and funding

  • Human capital development and leveraging of the Gig economy
  • Using Cloud based tools, AI and resources for strategic growth
