How does it work?
We know that every academic institution has a unique approach to pedagogy and we co-create each program so that the full entrepreneurial journey, online & offline, follows a logical progression. We will align with you on the program outcomes and adapt the service to fit your student’s unique needs.
We can integrate the program inside a degree or work with your in-campus innovation center.
Together we’ll define the objectives of your program, the milestones and the calendar that best works for you.
We’ll decide the selection criteria for both students and faculty and find exactly what you need.
Students think it all starts with an idea, we both know it starts with a problem.
We offer ideation sessions to kickoff the program and help students start the program with the right motivation. Once we know they’re ready we onboard them to the program.
You’ll be able to attract and select professionals from your alumni network, your wider community or ours; and match each team of students with a mentor.
We’ll define together exactly what type of mentoring profiles we need to best support your students and scout exactly for that.
We’ll grant access to all the teams to the 8 incubation tools that will guide them in creating a validated business plan.
They will meet weekly with their mentors to go over their work, and share doubts and fears.
We teach entrepreneurship too, we can guide and support you in order to align our methodology to your classes and make it an even more organic process for your students or we can also deliver them ourselves. Your call!
By the end of the program, each team is able to generate a visual business plan that helps you evaluate them, and helps them structure their final pitch in front of the class or a jury.
After that, your students have not only learned about entrepreneurship by being immersed in the experience but they’re actually ready to build their venture: develop an MVP, pitch to investors or build their teams.
