Venture School Program

Venture School is a 6-week program that emphasizes real-world entrepreneurship and innovation based on leading edge curriculum taught by serial entrepreneurs. This program works for startups, small businesses, non-profits, and corporate innovation teams. Teams will accelerate the startup process by testing their business hypotheses. Teams will get out of the building to talk to customers, partners, and competitors, rather than relying on static case studies and secondhand market research. Venture School not only accelerates the startup process, but also increases your chance of success by 20%.
