This unit is focused on applying theoretical understandings of the process of commercialisation through the traditional commercialisation pathway, from idea to market, using a number of real world case studies. This involves an investigation of the intersection of intellectual property protection strategies, the digital economy, social media, funding sources and business model to create commercial value. This class will specifically look at the role of technology in contemporary commercialisation including the NBN and its applications to regions. Students will learn about the stages of commercialisation as described above and apply this knowledge, in their major assignment, to a project, enterprise or company they are interested in or personally involved with, through creating their own case study.
Entrepreneurs Social Media participation 40%; Commercialisation Case Study 60%.
