The Entrepreneurial Leadership Program (ELP) provides deep training for entrepreneurs to develop the functional, managerial, and leadership skills that differentiate the good from the great entrepreneurs. A key experiential component of ELP is a leadership assessment that will give insight into the current leadership practices of the cohort and allow them to gain the critical skills and experiences they need to become leaders of innovation and entrepreneurship. Upon completion of the program, ELP participants will continue their successful pursuits in entrepreneurial ventures as product managers, business development leaders, and founders.
