Pre-Entrepreneurship School
Be a part of the First Cohort-2021!

What is Pre-Entrepreneurship School?

Many of us including myself dive into entrepreneurship without validating startup ideas or even evaluating whether we have the right mindset to get on the path of entrepreneurship.  

What is the Pre-Entrepreneurship Program?

In these 3 months program (tentatively-February 2021- April 2021), I will work through the Pre-Entrepreneurship Handbook 1 and 2 to share with the participants on what entrepreneurship is all about by going through 10 principles while going through some entrepreneurial theories (including Babson's Entrepreneurial Thought & Action, Economics of Mutuality, and more) to help validate ideas that you have in mind.

The school-program will also include be going through the workbooks that are within the Handbooks and having group discussion on how to apply them.

At the end of the program, we'll develop a pitch about yourself and/or startup idea-presenting it to the group.
