One or more programs

Join one program per year (e.g. Red), completing the TVLP training in 3 years, or two programs (e.g. Red+Blue). You can also attend the comprehensive Flagship or follow only the classes (no Labs, no social activities) for a reduced tuition.

In any order

Start with Red, then Blue and Green. Or attend Blue first. Sort the programs as it works best for you. You can also combine on-line and in-person programs. Each program is designed as a stand-alone module and covers one of the main training parts in technology entrepreneurships.

A custom experience using Labs

Programs are made of core sessions and elective Labs. There are Labs for startup founders rather than leaders of a large company, as well as sessions of Individual Mentorings. Scientists can channel scientific knowledge to innovation. Wannabe investors and consultants can learn Silicon Valley best practices. If you attend as a small team, you can have a private Lab.

An on-campus program in Silicon Valley is a impressive choice. However there are several good reasons for preferring a virtual format.

Designed as super intensive week, program maximizes learning. A typical day activities are 8 AM to 8 PM. The 'classes only' option has activities mainly in the morning.

Our holistic approach encompasses a mix of classroom lectures, applied labs, mentoring, 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 every Saturday for 10 weeks, improving your skills without compromising on your work and family responsibilities. Classes, labs, and supporting activities are broken up into weekly, manageable bite-sized modules, with incremental deadlines.

Due to the program virtual nature, group work replaces social events to network and exchange ideas with other participants.
