Our week-long leadership and entrepreneurship programs are 30-40 hands-on hours. In the startup workshop, participants start from innovation inception to plan, culminating in a pitch competition. The program builds the mindset for successful entrepreneurship: creativity, empathy, and problem-solving, also offering experiential skills in teamwork, self-assessment and communication in unexpected and fun ways. Enrollment limited.
The half-day and full-day programs encompass self-assessment and idea creation and then extend to the process of prototyping, testing ideas with target customers and iterating based on feedback. Participants receive a crash course in design thinking and beyond, immediately implementing the approaches in an engaging and exciting way. In prior sessions, we have spearheaded Design Challenges with Instagram and Logitech.
Entrepreneurial leaders make Silicon Valley connections at leading innovative companies, meeting with CEOs, industrial designers, mechanical engineers, software engineers and business people to develop a network, explore career opportunities and become familiar with leading technology.
