Technology Entrepreneurship Program

Flagship comprehensive guidance throughout the entire entrepreneurial journey. This acclaimed program prepares entrepreneurs, scientists, and CEOs to emulate the best practices that have made Silicon Valley the icon of innovation and understand what it takes to create, finance, and lead a new venture or innovation project.

Flagship program includes Red, Blue, and Green module curriculums.

Module 1: Selecting ideas and building ventures.
Module 2: Financing and raising capital.
Module 3: Leading and team development.

Certification: Certificate in Technology Entrepreneurship.

Duration: 3 weeks in-person, or a mix of virtual and in-person modules.


Entire program or single modules

Attend the comprehensive Flagship (all 3 modules) or combine individual modules – Red, Blue, or Green – each designed to be a stand-alone course covering one of the main training parts in technology entrepreneurship. You can also follow only the classes (no Mentoring Labs, no social activities) for reduced tuition.

Stay flexible

Start with Red, then Blue and Green. Or attend Blue first. Sort the modules as it works best for you. You can combine Virtual (live online) part-time and In-Person full-time courses (e.g., Red Virtual + Blue In-Person). One module per year (e.g., Red) to complete the training in 3 years, or two modules (e.g., Red+Blue).

A custom experience using Labs

Programs are made of core classes and elective Mentoring Labs. There are labs for startup founders rather than leaders of a large company. Scientists can channel scientific knowledge to innovation, and wannabe investors and consultants can learn Silicon Valley best practices. If you attend as a small team, you can have a private lab.

In-person in the Silicon Valley is impressive. There are several good reasons for choosing a virtual format.

The program maximizes learning in a super-intensive schedule with 8 AM to 8 PM activities, Monday to Friday. The 'classes only' option is less intensive.

Our holistic approach encompasses a mix of classroom lectures, mentoring labs, and networking opportunities with Silicon Valley investors and leaders. Alternating on-campus and off-campus events ensures participants are always fresh and energized.


Program sessions are live-online, no recordings, every Saturday for 10 weeks, improving your skills without compromising your work and family responsibilities. Classes, mentoring labs, and supporting activities are broken into weekly bite-sized modules with incremental deadlines.

Due to the program's virtual nature, group work replaces social events to network and exchange ideas between participants.
