Why attend Strategy for Startups?

There are many possible paths to success for good ideas. How can innovators and entrepreneurs weigh their options and confidently make choices to position their ventures for competitive advantage? This two-day entrepreneurship course provides a practical and systematic approach to exploring and evaluating the core choices that entrepreneurs need to make as they translate their ideas into reality.

To achieve competitive advantage, innovation-driven and growth-oriented entrepreneurs must balance experimentation and learning with the selection and implementation of a strategy. Designed for innovation-driven and growth-oriented startups, this entrepreneurship course builds on an emerging body of work at MIT and elsewhere that moves beyond a one-size-fits-all approach to startups and instead focuses on the key choices that founders face as they start and scale their business.
