Disciplined Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for delta v

What is the Disciplined Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for delta v?

The Disciplined Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for delta v is a fast-paced crash course exclusively for delta v team members who have limited experience working with the DE Framework. You will learn key concepts and terminology that we will be using to coach teams and run board meetings throughout the summer.

What’s the format?

This course will be taught in a highly interactive, action-oriented workshop style, similar to how we teach it in intensive DE bootcamps like MEMSI and MEFTI. Most in-class exercises will be based on your own startups. We will build not only knowledge, but also skills on how to apply this knowledge in a very short time while having fun.

Who should take it?

Delta v team members who have not taken 15.390 New Enterprises, 15.378/3781 Building Entrepreneurial Ventures, fuse, MEMSI, MEFTI or other courses where you apply the DE Framework to your startup project

What’s in it for me?

You will learn key concepts and terminology that will help you speak the same language as our coaches, instructors, and most importantly, your board members. Everything will make more sense from day 1.

Also: We will be serving snacks!
