Why attend the Entrepreneurship Development Program (EDP)?

Drawing from the vast culture of innovation and entrepreneurship at MIT, this unique entrepreneurship 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.

 

The EDP experience:

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.

Being an entrepreneur is one thing, but standing firm in the world as an antifragile entrepreneur is quite another. Since implementing an antifragile organizational culture in my company, I have seen noticeable differences in the way we optimize all levels of business operation. Had I not gone through the unique training processes provided by MIT, I hate to imagine what my mindset might have been during this turning point in history...

This course is probably the best education I've received and enjoyed! The sessions were engaging and it was always a shame when they ended. The practical application was fast paced, challenging and very interesting... It was great to share the experience with so many people from so many countries, this added a lot of richness to the process… All of the speakers were exceptional… the whole week was flawless.
