Do you want to learn how to develop an idea into something tangible? Are you keen to enhance your employability skills for the startup world and beyond? Or do you simply want to further your understanding of what it takes to be innovative and entrepreneurial? StartupReady is the program for you!
An entrepreneurial mindset is fueled by curiosity, geared towards problem-solving, and driven by a desire to bring about change in the world. This mindset and its accompanying skill sets are valuable across disciplines and can help distinguish you in a wide variety of workplaces, within and beyond the tech sector.
StartupReady will initiate you into the world of entrepreneurship and innovation by bringing you through a series of experiences to help you:
Build your entrepreneurial mindset and skills in the areas of agile management, presentation & storytelling, customer discovery, prototyping and design thinking; and
Expand your network with like-minded peers and industry leaders through collaborating with students across disciplines and engaging in a real-time entrepreneurial challenge.
