Our program is based on CYCLES, a method developed by 22 innovation experts. A 5-day program that works on the ABCS of innovation.
We are building an
of educators around the world
mindset in just 5 days!
We base our curriculum on CYCLES, a method developed by award-winning professors and innovation experts.
There are currently hundreds (if not thousands) of programs set up to support entrepreneurship education, but none are equipped to reach millions of entrepreneurs.
The reason is that they are expensive (costing up to and over $1000 per student), too long (2-112 weeks long), and hard to scale because they cannot be integrated with other programs and most require highly skilled trainers.
Our program covers the essentials in 5 days, costs the local equivalent of €50 per student, and can easily be integrated into hundreds of other programs.
We believe the only way we will make entrepreneurship education accessible to a million individuals, irrespective of their background, is by creating an alliance of like-minded people working together worldwide.
reasons to believe
The program content, the work of 22 innovation experts, collected in the book CYCLES, has been proven and tested at EDHEC – Europe’s top school for entrepreneurship.
Our program is based on independent local programs that are easy to scale and collaborate for continual improvement.
We have successful trained students as young as 17 from 22 countries. We have initiated programs in Nigeria, Angola, India, and Malaysia based on these successes.
WHAT IS THE MAGIC?
There are thousands of courses and programs on innovation and entrepreneurship. We did not build something new; we took the best, and improved the content, making things a lot simpler and hands-on.
Like the lean start-up, design thinking, and strategy, our program is built on the PDSA (Plan, Do, Study, Act). We explain why this methodology is important and help people to plan, build, test and improve ideas step by step. What initially started as a 30-hour course, we reduced the content to 12 hours of training through trial and error and added more vital learn-by-doing. We also made the online course more interactive and fun.
Our course is now fast (5 days), fun (we have a 92% completion rate), cost-effective (our fee for books, online tools, and instructor training is just €50 per student), and easy to scale (we have a simple, effective train the trainer model).
