WHAT IS THE ENTREPRENEURIAL SIMULATOR? 

A 7-week training program (taking place from May to August each year), divided in two stages. 

The first stage is a 4-week online program in which you will start your entrepreneurial journey by mapping the ecosystem you are traveling to. You will also learn about Emerging Technologies and Megatrends, you will meet your fellow treps and choose a group of global challenges you would like to solve.

This first stage is followed by 3 weeks in the actual ecosystem where you will solve the global challenge you chose by creating an entrepreneurial project with your team, supported by an Entrepreneur in Residence, mentors and other talented entrepreneurs like you. At the end of the program you will pitch to a panel of investors to validate your idea in the real world. 

The goal is to develop your entrepreneurial competencies in the world's top innovation ecosystems: Silicon Valley, New York, Boston, San Diego, Miami, London, Madrid and Mexico City.
