CONTENT SUMMARY

INTRODUCTION

According to Astro Awani News dated 3 December 2020, 800,000 workers in Malaysia have been retrenched tue to COVID-19 and Movement Control Order (MCO) implementation. Employment of fresh graduates is also facing the same situation. Therefore, this program provides an opportunity to the particpants to plan for their tech start-ups by upskilling their knowledge and skills related to technopreneurship. The emphasis on this course is on the aspect of nurturing technopreneurship among participants so they can understand the concept of creativity and innovation to produce IT solution to real-life scenario. The course discusses concepts of technopreneurship: drivers of IT industry (e.g. government policies, domestic market, infrastructure, and market linkages), business concepts, and project management methodology, which are necessary in setting up and managing IT business. The implication of this course covers the technopreneurship from conception to implementation of a new IT venture. The technopreneurship team project emulates a consulting relationship. The completion of this course is the students’ ‘proof of competency’.
