This paper outlines the design of an entrepreneurial finance course at the University of St. Thomas around an experiential project. The concept is straightforward: students raise money for a business concept and then execute on it; the expectation was that students would better learn everything that was taught in the course, from pro formas to liquidation preference, if they experienced it. The project we developed and implemented has had even better outcomes than we anticipated.
