For 20+ years, I taught in a University of Arizona entrepreneurship program. This Innovation Impact Mindmap started on the whiteboard in my office, a graphic schematic of the course syllabus.
A syllabus is sequential, but innovation and entrepreneurship usually is not. They bounce around a bit, from here to there and round again.
The whiteboard version was fairly simple, but useful. Students and colleagues took pictures of it for reference. So, I thought, why not elaborate it just a little bit?
[OK, OK, so maybe a little bit more than just a little bit!]
I've added elements that I thought would be most useful, but certainly not all apply to every new venture! The "main highway" is the mission statement, highlighted in yellow.
Think of this Mindmap as a checklist of the elements you might want to visit as you travel around on your new venture adventure!
