Creating E-Commerce Start-Ups with Information Systems Students: Lessons Learned from New Venture Successes and Failures
Abrahams, Alan
Information Systems Education Journal, v8 n35 Jun 2010
In this paper, we review a variety of e-commerce startups created by senior information systems students, under the author's guidance, over a number of years at multiple universities. We compare the characteristics of the start-ups and comment on various factors which appear to have contributed to their success or failure. Our recommendations are intended to help information systems educators to improve the chances of new venture success in their classrooms, and to enhance the pedagogic value of e-commerce courses.
