Event description

Description

The ​Boot ​Camp ​for ​Innovation, ​Technology, ​& ​Entrepreneurship ​will ​provide ​a ​thorough ​exposure ​to ​both ​the ​concept ​and ​practice ​of ​entrepreneurship. ​The ​curriculum ​is ​shaped ​and ​delivered ​by ​world-class ​professors ​from ​UC ​Berkeley’s ​Haas ​School ​of ​Business ​and ​successful ​entrepreneurs ​in ​Silicon ​Valley. ​ ​The ​course ​combines ​classroom ​sessions ​with ​lectures ​and ​interactive ​activities ​as ​well ​as ​out ​of ​class ​exercises ​and ​assignments ​to ​provide ​you ​with ​the ​skills, ​culture, ​and ​networks ​you ​need ​to ​establish, ​operate, ​sustain, ​and ​scale ​new ​businesses. ​**Upon ​completion ​of ​the ​course, ​participants ​will ​receive ​Berkeley-Haas ​certificates. ​

Participants ​will ​be ​introduced ​to ​the ​fundamentals ​of ​technology ​entrepreneurship, ​gaining ​familiarity ​with ​the ​processes ​that ​will ​allow ​them ​to ​go ​from ​ideas ​to ​implementation. ​The ​course ​will ​cover ​best ​practices ​on ​recruiting ​and ​retaining ​talent, ​forming ​teams, ​pitching ​ideas, ​raising ​capital, ​prototyping ​solutions, ​testing ​markets, ​selling ​and ​marketing ​products ​and ​services, ​and ​launching ​scalable ​enterprises ​capable ​of ​creating ​value ​in ​both ​economic ​and ​social ​terms. ​Participants ​will ​also ​learn ​how ​to ​define ​problems ​and ​determine ​which ​ones ​to ​solve, ​becoming ​familiar ​with ​formulating ​solutions ​that ​are ​“usefully ​different” ​from ​and ​superior ​to ​what ​exists ​on ​the ​market. ​ ​

Throughout, ​theoretical ​and ​conceptual ​approaches ​will ​be ​supplanted ​by ​case ​studies ​and ​visits ​to ​Silicon ​Valley, ​where ​students ​will ​be ​exposed ​to ​practical ​examples ​of ​both ​budding ​and ​thriving ​startups, ​renowned ​technology ​companies, ​venture ​capitalists, ​angel ​investors, ​as ​well ​as ​incubators ​and ​accelerators. ​The ​course ​will ​be ​enriched ​by ​insights ​from ​entrepreneurs ​and ​VC’s, ​who ​will ​discuss ​their ​successes ​and ​failures, ​analyzing ​the ​lessons ​they ​have ​derived ​from ​each.

Cost: $6,000
