In week 1 you will complete a world-class enterprise and innovation course that introduces the key tools and methodologies that drive our entrepreneurial process; the Business Model Canvas, Customer Development, Lean Start-up, Design Thinking.
From week 2 you will work in small teams of International Fellows supporting a group of ambitious local entrepreneurs. Together you will imagine, plan and deliver high impact enterprise support, applying the tools learned during week 1.
As the program progresses, you will work side-by-side with your entrepreneur groups, helping them to develop and test exciting new business ideas. This might involve anything from creating marketing strategies and conducting customer interviews to building prototypes and making sales.
On the final weekend your entrepreneurs will pitch for investment from our Balloon Fund and we’ll support the best ideas to help them launch and grow.
