Learn entrepreneurial skills through immersion in the startup community. Our faculty is a mix of Entrepreneurs, VCs and Specialists, as well as our Fellows. The program runs for 6-months (September through March) including 60 hours of interactive coursework, some minor home prep, and 20 hours of giving back. Classes are held twice a month in the evening and there are three all-day Saturday workshops. The format is primarily Socratic discussions and panels led by active participants of the industry. We focus on what is important for the entrepreneur, from cultivating your idea, to building your company, to raising capital, to making an exit. After graduation, the learning continues with industry focused groups, networking events, and global calls with accomplished Fellows and executive partners helping us stay connected.
