Are you interested in:
- working in or potentially starting your own entrepreneurial ventures?
- joining an entrepreneurial start-up?
- taking on a strategic or innovation role in a corporation?
- joining a venture capital fund?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then consider joining us for LILAC’s upcoming Entrepreneurship Intensive! This new intensive combines both the technocratic and practical skills of entrepreneurship with the leadership, interpersonal, and negotiation skills it takes to lead successfully over time.
In this intensive, you will be exposed to a variety of formats – lectures with short assigned readings, case studies, and action/experiential learning. By combining these formats, you will be supported to conceptualize key lessons as well as apply them to a proprietary framework where you will develop and learn to test your own ideas.
Key concepts and lessons will include industry analysis, competitive analysis, customer research, discovery driven planning, revenue model including developing the economic model of the business, strategy and pricing analysis, and term sheets and valuations. You will be exposed to key concepts in each area, and you will have the opportunity to apply them.
Learn how your liberal arts education – the ability to read and synthesize data across a variety of fields – is the first and most important aspect of working in or developing an entrepreneurial venture. This intensive builds on those core skills and creates an avenue for their confident application.
The intensive will be led by Leslie Broudo Mitts, PhD. Leslie earned her BA at Bryn Mawr in Political Science and Economics, her MBA from Wharton, and her PhD from Penn in Anthropology. Between earning her MBA and her PhD, Leslie worked in corporate development, strategy, and mergers and acquisitions for a Fortune 50 company, built and led a consulting firm specializing in information technology, led two tech venture funds (including one as founder), and built and ran an entrepreneurship practicum at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. She is a big believer that confidence, vision, creativity, resilience and persistence are keys to success.
