INNOVATION

ENTREPRENEURIAL & VENTURE CAPITAL MINDSET FOR SUCCESSFUL INNOVATION

When executives are in a position to make important decisions on which path to take for growth, Prof. DaSilva asks them to put on their Entrepreneurial and Venture Capitalist hat and imagine that they’re investing in an innovative startup. This helps them re-imagine and re-prioritize the risks associated with launching new products, services and disruptive business models in new ways, which is sometimes hard for established organizations that aren’t used to growing in this way. This shift in mindset is absolutely critical, if significant new growth is to be realized via disruptive innovation, start-up collaborations or strategic corporate venture investments.

Participants develop a methodology for better decision making related to innovation strategies and investments. The entrepreneurial and venture capital mindset allows them to assess new ideas, value innovative start-ups, technologies and develop financing and negotiation strategies both internally and externally.

Key learnings from the course are immediately applied to practical exercises from live case-studies to role-playing to demonstrate the essential meaning of each subject covered.

"The program is tailored to meet the most pressing needs of managers and corporate entrepreneurs dealing with innovation and digitization. Specifically, the course examines decision making questions related with disruptive innovations and technology."
