We created a world class learning environment. Students are surrounded by resources, instructed and mentored by top tier business school alumni, successful entrepreneurs, consultants and experts in multiple fields. Our students learn leadership by becoming founders of companies, teamwork through working on growing their businesses, and resilience by experiencing the ups and downs of the startup experience. We believe in learning by doing, and we mean it.
Asking the Right Questions
Finding the right question is even more important than finding the right answer. Students begin by identifying compelling problems, and uncovering unmet needs.
Students are encouraged to look at problem from multiple angles, finding several solutions that can be pursued and tested.
Testing Ideas and Market Research
Each idea goes through a rigorous testing process. Is this the best solution to the problem? Students learn identify viable ideas, pivoting towards a workable business model.
Business Model and Financial Projections
Students design business models for their companies. This is not a hypothetical business plan competition. This is the real thing.
Resilience, Leadership, Teamwork
There is more to starting a successful company than just business skills. We emphasize communication, teamwork, and resilience training, as students are challenged to discover their own path to success.
Pitching to Investors
Students complete the program by pitching their startup to investors with real money at stake.
