What do Spanx, HP, Avon, Time, IBM, Gilt and Yahoo! have in common? Women founders and CEO’s, that’s what!
New York City is the global capital for women entrepreneurs and, this summer, as a future entrepreneur, you can learn how to launch your very own startup. We'll help you develop an idea and turn it into a promising plan of action with hands-on teaching by some of the most successful leaders in the industry.
Courses for this program range from Developing a Business Idea to Getting Funded and include three site visits to start-ups in New York, including General Assembly and Gilt Group. Students will work in groups as they develop their own ventures, build public speaking skills, and ultimately pitch their ideas to mentors, staff, judges, and fellow students - resulting in an awards ceremony for Most Compelling Pitch and more. Instructors for these courses and workshops are start-up experts, having founded or lead ventures of their own.
Students will attend class, workshops, or site visits from 9 am - 5:30/6 pm Monday through Tuesday of the following week. Evening hours can be used to attend a variety of activities provided by the Summer Pre-College program.
