The program will cover everything you need to know to start your own company, from team formation and customer engagement to finance strategy, branding and pitching to investors.
And most importantly, real-world business speakers and mentors, who are working for Google, Ferrari, IDEO and more, will guide you throughout the 3 weeks!
