The University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business in Colorado has introduced “Gateway to Business,” a course that requires students to develop a mobile app, build a prototype, and compete for funding – all in their freshmen year.

“Students don’t have to wait until their third or fourth year in a business program before they’re ready to become successful entrepreneurs,” says Stephen Haag, an associate professor-in-residence in business information and analytics who taught the spring pilot of the course.
