Dream Big, Disrupt the World

Entrepreneurship is more than just starting your own company. It’s a mindset that can’t simply be learned from lectures alone.

That’s why we offer a unique learning experience delivered through practices of actionable theory, which focus on the process, as well as the outcome.

Following the "Lean Startup'' methodology, our program fosters your ability to think creatively in your quest to develop innovative products and services, and provide real value to users using sound engineering practices. You’ll explore the multifaceted steps toward building a company, from understanding your customers’ needs to building out a working prototype. 

Take a look at our curriculum to learn more.

Learn While You Build

Through an 8-month-long project, you'll have the chance to take your startup idea to the next level.
