The [email protected] 2-week residential programme on INSEAD Europe campus in Fontainebleau will take place from 24 July to 6 August 2022. For more information, please click here.

 

We are pleased to continue to offer STARTUP -  5-day virtual entrepreneurship bootcamp tailored for talented and curious high school students of 15-18 years of age.

Aimed to inspire and empower young talents to develop a deeper appreciation and understanding of the exciting world of founders, the programme features 4 daily hours of live lectures by INSEAD faculty, talks by distinguished INSEAD alumni entrepreneurs, interactive learning experience through simulation, teamwork and mentoring. To further enrich the programme, participants will also be given extra individual and team assignments to complete outside the scheduled programme hours.

The content of STARTUP by [email protected] is complementary to our in-person [email protected] programme, in Startup we focus on new venture creation and entrepreneurship over five days. in [email protected] we look at business awareness in general over two weeks. Age-permitting it is absolutely fine to attend both programmes. In fact, STARTUP by [email protected] is good preparation for the in-person [email protected]

Online Academic Enrichment

STARTUP by [email protected] provides in-depth and interactive exploration of the world of entrepreneurship and a step-by step approach for aspiring young entrepreneurs looking to convert ideas into up-and-running, revenue-generating business.

It draws on a live simulation and lectures by INSEAD faculty, experiences of guest-speakers and a final group project – complete with a pitch to a panel of judges made of real investors and entrepreneurs. By the end, students will have a good understanding of an entrepreneurship journey from ideating to designing a compelling business model and recruiting a team.

A Rich and Interactive Learning Experience.

Each class is limited to a maximum of 45 students to ensure a rich and interactive learning experience.
Daily classroom instruction features carefully selected advanced content adapted to a high school audience as well as a live simulation originally designed for the STARTUP programme.

A Real-Time Online Instruction

Students meet for four hours each day (Monday–Friday) for live classroom discussion with INSEAD faculty, INSEAD alumni entrepreneurs, mentors and peers. Students can choose to attend the morning (9:00AM to 1:00PM CET) OR afternoon (2:00PM to 6:00PM CET). Note that students cannot switch from morning to afternoon session or vice versa.

Workload

Similar to what you would experience at [email protected], students can expect an intensive, rich, interactive workload of assignments - to complete outside the scheduled programme hours. Coursework includes assigned readings, individual and teamwork, and more.

Active Student Engagement

Active participation is key to creating an online community of engaged learners, and students are expected to participate in class and engage with their peers, faculty. mentors and guest speakers. Note that attendance to all live classes is compulsory and students will be excluded from the programme would they fail to attend a session.
