BUSN 269 CRN: 25156 Economics of the Side Hustle

Do you have a business idea, a charitable organization, or a hobby that you would like to turn into a business? All businesses or non-profit organizations do not have to start out as well capitalized entities where the founder devotes their entire life and stakes their fortunes on the pursuit of a business or a charitable organization. You can start small and develop over time, or keep the organization small through the use of a side hustle project. This class will cover the economics of the side hustle project by having you select and refine your own side hustle, determine the basic cost and financing of your business idea or organization, review different pricing strategies, and help determine a strategy to launch and maintain the project.
