Seminar concept (aims)

To stimulate and nurture entrepreneurial drive among MIM students, and enrich MIM curriculum with a practical course benchmarked to the best B-Schools’ offering

The Seminar will cover three complementary components that are critical for success of many  start ups: entrepreneurship; innovation, and leadership

Each component should offer both theory and  practical application – and ideally will be developed by joint effort of academic and business experts

The experience will be enriched by study and discussion of real-life cases – especially presented first-hand by entrepreneurs, innovators and venture capitalists
