A five-day intensive experience that integrates lectures, exercises, and team projects
We are pleased to announce that DFJ Frontier (a seed venture capital firm from California) has agreed to lead the Lab2Market Entrepreneurship Academy again this summer. The 2007 and 2008 workshops met with rave reviews. The workshop is a five-day intensive experience that integrates lectures, exercises, and team projects. Applicants must commit to attending all of the five days. This year’s agenda is still being finalized, but sneak a peek at the pending agenda here: http://cpd.ogi.edu/class.asp?n=10-ENT-01
