Abstract
This case focuses on one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the U.S. during the 1980s and 1990s, H. Wayne Huizenga. Huizenga amassed a fortune of $2.3 billion, but was still seeking out new ventures. Several questions are located at the end of the case. Students are expected to answer these questions based on the content in the case. However, at points, students may have to gather their own information when necessary, outside of the case. The case was written primarily for undergraduate students in entrepreneurship and business strategy. This case can be best used either in the startup or growth stage of entrepreneurship curriculum. The course can be taught in one hour and twenty minutes and students should spend four hours of research preparing for the case.
