Disciplined Entrepreneurship Workshop Application

Thank you for your interest in the MITCNC's workshop for early stage entrepreneurs! As indicated in the announcement, this program is aimed primarily at alumni who are actively launching new ventures, so they will be given priority in the selection process. Ideally, each venture will be represented by the founder/ CEO and 1-2 other team members, including the senior technical person (e.g., CTO, VP Engineering).

This application is designed to help us understand the current stage of your venture and determine how much you (and your team) can benefit from working through the Disciplined Entrepreneurship framework. This course will help you brainstorm, refine, and develop your beachhead market so you attract paying customers.

We are not looking for a fully fleshed out business plan. Simply provide the detail that you have thus far so we can understand your work to date and thought process. We look forward to learning more about you, your team, and your venture!

PLEASE NOTE:
While you cannot "save" your application, you can submit it partially completed and later edit your responses. While all questions are required for us to consider your application complete, they are not required while your application is in progress.

When you hit "submit," you will be taken to a page similar to the one below. Be sure to copy and store the web link somewhere so you can return to your application at a later date. If you do not submit your responses, they will not be saved. Further, we will not have access to your unique edit link. Please save it somewhere for yourself!
