Expected from participants

You need to dedicate 2 days in one month for classroom sessions and one month for an online course, to take you through this Foundation Program (SEED Stage). You should be willing to dedicate your mental bandwidth for exploring ideas and concepts that keep popping in your head. An open and receptive mind will assist you in the entrepreneurial introspection that comes as a direct result of this Program.

Our team will be with you every step of the way after every session to walk you through the process.

 

The Cisco Certification of Completion for Basic EDP will be awarded on completion of the "Entrepreneurial Mindset" Workshop. The Entrepreneurial Mindset Workshop is specifically designed to explore the mindset of successful entrepreneurs. Rather than focus on business plans and balance sheets, you’ll examine the world through the eyes of real-world entrepreneurs who will tell you how they think, how they are able to recognize opportunities, and the mindset that enabled them to transform those opportunities into successful new ventures.
