What We’re About
The Hacking Entrepreneurship class is an immersive online workshop that teaches participants the “Six Essential Skills” framework which is based on five years of research at Harvard and over 200 interviews with today’s top entrepreneurs including the founders of LinkedIn, Airbnb, SpaceX and Tesla Motors, Under Armour, Chipotle, Dropbox, Yelp, and JetBlue, among others.
Each week of Hacking Entrepreneurship opens with a lively concept lecture by Stanford Graduate School of Business Lecturer Amy Wilkinson followed by a combination of interactive skill-building exercises, social learning, and concrete takeaways tailored to the interests of high school and college students. Current Stanford University students work as Teaching Assistants and lead breakout sessions.
Participants who engage in Hacking Entrepreneurship will leave having gained knowledge of how to spot opportunities, make quick decisions, and build on each other’s ideas. On the last day, participants pitch their ideas in a Shark Tank-style competition to say why their startups will be wildly successful in the world.
Why We Created This Program
2020 is more than just the start of a new decade. It also marks the beginning of rewriting the way we live. For high school and college students to be successful in this new era, they need to create their own opportunities.
To help students rapidly adapt to the new reality, we’ve created the Hacking Entrepreneurship class. This virtual course is taught by Lecturer in Management at Stanford Graduate School of Business and best-selling author “The Creator’s Code: The Six Essential Skills of Extraordinary Entrepreneurs,” Amy Wilkinson and an all Stanford team of Teaching Assistants.
We are looking for dreamers, doers, creators, pioneers, trailblazers, explorers, inventors, risktakers, changemakers, visionaries, and idealists who will grab the opportunity to prepare themselves to build tomorrow by strengthening their entrepreneurial skills set.
Join us in building essential skills that will help you thrive in the years to come.
