I've loved the sessions of Bill interviewing great guests, they were of such value to me, and the greatest was the ending session with the lunch with a view! Best view to Boston, and best speakers! This program is really an experience, it's very hard work, but it worth every second!

  • Michael O: The EDP is excellent, a fertile environment for learning and collaborating through a superbly managed process, inspiring teaching and mentoring and extraordinary insight into Entrepreneurship. Visiting Entrepreneurs as mentors were an underpinning of 'follow the process' 'trust in the process' and 'stay calm' It is all there, step by step, 24 of them, all presented in a unique illustration and articulation. Once followed and revised, one can easily contextualise, transfer and significantly use to steer their own business of influence. Superb!!

Teaching the entrepreneurial craft at startup speed

Since it’s inception in 1999, the Entrepreneurship Development Program has allowed thousands of participants from more than 75 countries to “drink from the MIT firehose,” as Bill Aulet affectionately puts it. The goal is to maximize MIT’s impact by exporting its unique brand of high-tech entrepreneurship to people from around the world.

A WINNING COMBINATION: MIT AND SCOTLAND COLLABORATE TO ACCELERATE BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

For more than a decade, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and Scottish Enterprise (two Scottish economic development agencies) have partnered to support the success of a variety of entrepreneurial ventures within the country through participation in the MIT Sloan Entrepreneurship Development Program (EDP).

These government-sponsored economic development groups recognize that the program is instrumental in instilling a culture of ambition while equipping its country’s entrepreneurs with the skills and knowledge needed to accelerate their growth potential.
