"We are so proud, in just our first year of running Ideas 2 Action, to be considered the best entrepreneurship boot camp in the country by the Education Advisory Board."       -Erick Mueller, Director of the Deming Center for Entrepreneurship
IMG_7040 We live in a rapidly changing business environment, what was ahead of its time six months ago is the standard today, and the only way to remain ahead of the curve is to change how you identify opportunities. You don’t have to be Steve Jobs or Mark Zuckerberg to be entrepreneurial, you simply have to get outside of your comfort zone and view the world around you differently, and with our one-week Ideas 2 Action program, you'll learn to do just that. Launched in 2014, I2A is optimized for the person who wants and needs an entrepreneurship education but doesn't have time to pursue an MBA or MS in the field. And with the runaway success of our inaugural program, this year's Ideas 2 Action promises to be even better with features including a startup tour, improv workshop, entrepreneurship fundamentals, ideation, competitive strategy, product/service development, marketing, fundraising, entrepreneurial finance, team building, attracting resources, scaling and acceleration, mentoring sessions with all-star business leaders and a pitch competition judged by a panel of Boulder investors and executives. These are just a few of the highlights! This being the second year running our entrepreneurial boot-camp, we are confident that our world-class MBA faculty and programming will result in a positive transformation in your life. Ideas 2 Action will instill the foundation of knowledge needed to drive innovation in your company, commercialize technologies, or monetize your budding idea or ideas. In 2014, students not only learned about the principles of entrepreneurship, but also experienced entrepreneurship firsthand through hands-on workshops, projects, and interactions with the real-world marketplace and mentors. Entrepreneurship is not confined to startups, its applicable to any company large or small, no matter the industry. We encourage the following people to apply:
  • Executives looking to drive innovation in their firm.
  • Researchers looking to commercialize technologies.
  • Nascent entrepreneurs who want to launch startups.
  • Self-made entrepreneurs looking to learn the principles of entrepreneurship to grow their startup.
Past I2A participants came from a wide variety of backgrounds – students, long-time business owners, corporate employees, you name it – and by program’s end, each and every participant attested to its positive impact. Whether they figured out how to control their business' finances or finally felt informed enough to launch the startup of their dreams, the I2A class of 2014 has gone on to utilize their fresh, innovative perspective in business and life to pursue their passions. We guarantee that all participants walk away from I2A with an entrepreneurial toolkit that will serve them in all of their future endeavors.   In addition to developing these skills, one will also leave with an enhanced network of peers, mentors, investors and executives. So what are you waiting for? Ideas 2 Action awaits.  Sign up for more information today!
