Instructions for Assessment 2: Group report & presentation on an entrepreneurial venture

In groups of between four to five students choose an entrepreneurial venture to analyse. You are advised to choose a relatively recent entrepreneurial venture so that information about the entrepreneurial process leading to the launch and growth of the venture is still available. You may not choose a venture that was started by the entrepreneur studied by any of your team members for Assessment 1.
