Drawing from the vast culture of innovation and entrepreneurship at MIT, this unique course introduces participants to MIT’s entrepreneurial education programs, technology transfer system, and global entrepreneurial network. It covers the entire venture creation process, from generating ideas to building viable global businesses, with a special emphasis on the nurturing roles of corporations, universities, governments, and foundations.

This program leverages MIT's culture of high-tech entrepreneurship to help entrepreneurs, corporate venturing executives, startup companies, and others involved in entrepreneurial environments learn what they need to develop ideas into successful businesses, and how to increase entrepreneurial opportunities in their corporations, institutions, and regions.

Through lectures by senior MIT faculty, visits to local startup companies, and live case studies with successful entrepreneurs, participants will be exposed to the content, context, and contacts that enable entrepreneurs to design and launch successful new ventures based on innovative technologies. Specially designed team projects give participants hands-on training and practical experience developing a business plan, while networking events bring participants together with members of MIT’s entrepreneurial community.

"Hands down the best learning experience ever in my life. Life changing, practical and engaging, taught by the top faculty in the field, you'll meet top entrepreneurs and hear their stories, you'll build an amazing network, be part of the MIT ecosystem, and above all you'll be having some serious fun. Bill Aulet is just great. This is a must for anyone who wants to start an innovation driven business/startup. . . I wish I have done this one before I started my company back in 2012. Simply, you will leave knowing exactly what you need to do from idea stage (defining your market and customer) till how to scale up your business. You will also understand how to present to investors to raise funds." - Tarek F.

The concepts, tools, and frameworks covered in the program will enable participants to:

  • Create, identify, and evaluate new venture opportunities
  • Interpret customer needs and quantify the value proposition
  • Start and build a successful technology-based company
  • Understand how the process of starting new ventures may vary geographically and culturally
  • Develop winning business plans
  • Scale startups to be globally successful
  • Navigate the venture capital investment process
  • Obtain feedback on personal entrepreneurship skills
  • Enhance and expand their networks

 

"The most valuable week of education I have had. This course is truly transformational, providing education that can be put straight into action to realise your entrepreneurial endeavours in either an existing business or a start-up. This course exceeded my expectations, providing me with knowledge, experience and networks to succeed." —Tim D.

"Bill Aulet and the rockstar EDP team have put together arguably the world’s best executive entrepreneurship program. It was fantastic to work with a diverse team to apply the ‘24 steps’ process, receive daily feedback from experienced mentors and pitch a start-up at the end of the week. The faculty lectures drilled down into the process and the live case studies with successful entrepreneurs and investors provided a context to how these best practices are applied. Finally, it was great to share experiences and bond with a global class of entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs and corporate innovation executives. I highly recommend the program to anyone interested in learning about developing ideas into successful businesses, and increasing entrepreneurial opportunities in their corporations and regions." —Suraj K.
