Matt Grant Case Study
Read the Matt Grant case–.pdf file. / https://content.grantham.edu/at/BA470/2014/grant_c… Complete a 3-5 page case analysis that includes an introduction and conclusion, and answers the following:
- Should Matt Grant pursue this opportunity? Why or why not? What are some of the critical challenges that he may encounter if he does push forward with his plan?
- Does Matt have the background and skills required to make the Racer’s Resource a success?
- Starting a new venture is almost always a risky undertaking. In addition to the financial and opportunity costs, entrepreneurship can also affect—for better or for worse—personal relationships and career trajectories. Discuss this dynamic in the context of this case.
- What else could Matt have done to research this opportunity?
- Examine the growth plan and upside potential of this venture. As an investor, would you take advantage of the Racer’s Resource offering?
Make sure paper body starts with a summary where there is a statement of thesis (overview of the points to be made), continues with a discussion (or specific answers to specific questions), and ends with a conclusion. The five specific questions should be annotated and have specific answers. Please double space—it’s easier for the grader to make comments.
All papers should be written in the third person (he, he, it, and they). Make every effort not to shift to second person (you, your) as in, “When starting a company you need money.” Try to avoid shifting to the first person (I, we) as well. It is distracting to the reader and bad style to shift persons in a paper—students often do it in the middle of a sentence.
