What sets the ICSB Academy apart from other start-up boot camps are the resources and its absolute global nature. The ICSB Academy has drawn distinguished academicians from leading institutions of higher education from across the globe, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and business expert to culminate into the Global Faculty. Furthermore, case studies and success stories of real people, and learning modules on fundamental concepts and tools will help participants identify entrepreneurial opportunities.
The Global Faculty will support venture topics that include, but are not limited to:
- Entrepreneurship & Sustainable Development Goals,
- Clean Energy,
- Social Entrepreneurship,
- Entrepreneurship & Leadership,
- Entrepreneurship & Information Technology (IT),
- Entrepreneurship & Peace,
- Entrepreneurship & the Arts,
- Entrepreneurship & the Sciences, and
- Entrepreneurship & Education.
Participants will be paired with mentors to gain insights and advice on their ideas and learn from mentors’ experiences in an ICSB Academy module known as Breakfast with an Entrepreneur, sponsored by the School of Systems and Enterprises at Stevens Institute of Technology.
Team formation also occurs through aggregation around preferred ideas, so participants are not required to have a new venture idea at the start.
