Startup Experience and NYC Immersion Trip
Startup Experience is a 2-day entrepreneurship program that is a unique opportunity to learn what it takes to become a successful entrepreneur. You will hear from experienced global entrepreneurs and work in a team to transform a big problem into a new opportunity for a startup company. During the program you’ll learn what it means to have an entrepreneurial mindset, how to be more creative, how to test your innovative ideas, and how to build a real viable company in just two days.
This program is for anyone interested in being a change maker – the tools you’ll get can be applied in all industries and in all careers. You don’t need to have a business idea to sign up – all you need is a lot of energy and a positive attitude.
