Innovation Commercialization Roadmap

I taught innovation and entrepreneurship classes at the University of Arizona. On the whiteboard in my office, I had drawn a roadmap of the new venture creation process. Some students and colleagues asked if they could take a photo of the whiteboard. Of course, I said yes. And I did the same. Took a photo, but ... I wanted to add a bit more here and there. Then I got carried away!! So ... the diagram you see today is the result.

Essentially, this roadmap is an entrepreneurship checklist ... most of the key elements that should be considered and likely addressed when putting together a plan for a new business venture.
At its core, entrepreneurship is innovation commercialization.
