Entrepreneurial Smart Camp: 27 June – 15 July 2016 Entrepreneurial Smart Camp is an opportunity to learn how to launch and manage a high potential new venture. The course will help you to fine-tune your early business concepts during a hands-on boot camp. By communicating the hardships of being an entrepreneur, we provide you with insights such as how a customer can get your product. Our goal is to build a road-map guiding the way for aspiring entrepreneurs and making you more resilient towards failure. Working in groups, you will be guided through the ‘exciting nightmare’ of taking an idea or a technology to market, growing the venture and securing a successful exit. You will attend guest lectures from sector experts and receive feedback on your ideas from industry leaders. No prior knowledge of the subject is required – all we ask is that you are interested in innovation and the creation of wealth. Topics covered will include: • Introduction: Philosophy of being an entrepreneur • Idea Validation • Value Proposition Design • Empathic design (IDEO Human centered design) • Building a venture team • Early market engagement and rapid prototyping (MVP) • How to protect your idea: Intellectual Property/trademark • Entrepreneurial strategy and the business model • Hustling 101 (networking session) • Validation/pivot • Investment strategy and pitching • Accelerators (navigating the startup landscape) & Intrapreneurship
