Hosted by: MIT Sloan Executive Education

The Entrepreneurship Development Program leverages MIT’s culture of high-tech entrepreneurship to help entrepreneurs, corporate venturing executives, startups, and others involved in entrepreneurial environments to develop their ideas into successful businesses, and increase entrepreneurial opportunities within their organizations and regions.

Through lectures by senior MIT faculty, visits to high-tech 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. The concepts, tools, and frameworks covered in the program will enable participants to:

  • Create, identify, and evaluate new venture opportunities
  • Interpret customer needs and quantify the value proposition
  • Start and build a successful technology-based company
  • Understand how the process of starting new ventures may vary geographically and culturally
  • Leverage new science and technologies from corporate or university laboratories
  • Develop winning business plans
  • Scale startups to be globally successful
  • Navigate the venture capital investment process
  • Obtain feedback on personal entrepreneurship skills
