The “Golden Egg” E-Portfolio and Venture Assessment provides an opportunity for you to demonstrate your potential as an entrepreneur in assessing the probability for success and a description of the “next steps” necessary to launch a successful small business venture. The assessment will be presented in the form of a final paper written assignment.
