Entrepreneurial Masters Program @ MIT

July 1, 2010

About one month ago I got back from the Entrepreneurial Masters Program (EMP) at MIT.  It’s a join run program with the Entrepreneur Organization and MIT.  It has been an amazing experience and every day I think about what I’ve learned.  I’m amazed by the other 64 entrepreneurs in my class and humbled to be a part of this group.  When my class graduates in 2012, we’ll be the 20th group to have completed this program.  There have been some very impressive individuals that have gone through this program, like Michael Dell (just to name one).
A few of the thinkspace members suggested that I share what I’ve learned and discuss what I’m implementing in my business from the EMP program.  So next week, on Thursday, July 8th at noon, I’m going to give you guys a quick overview and give you a few takeaways that can help you grow your business.  For thinkspace, my goal is to build a company that will last.  This program is certainly shining a light on what I don’t know.  I’m also seeing that it doesn’t matter what size your company is whether you’re a fairly new startup or a $500M company, we’re all going through similar types of problems and without having a peer group it can be kind of scary and lonely.  I’m putting together my presentation deck and plan to cover:
Building for Smart and Sustainable Growth
•    Strategy
•    People
•    Outcomes
If this sounds interesting to you and you think it might help your business grow, please RSVP by emailing [email protected] by Tuesday, July 6th.  I’ll have my team order up some pizza for lunch too!
When: July 8th
Time: Noon to 1pm
Where: First floor conference room
