Idea to Impact is an intensive program for entrepreneurs introducing practical tools to master the art of turning an ambitious idea into a high-growth high-impact business.

As an entrepreneur you may be frustrated by the amount of time, effort and money it takes to translate your idea from concept to meaningful impact.

Work with other like-minded entrepreneurs to master the practical art of lean innovation. Understand the critical importance of identifying and testing assumptions and learn how to do it in a very rapid and lean way.

We will challenge you with fast-paced real-world tasks to empower you to:

  • Identify the right market opportunity
