What will I learn?

We outline the program breakdown here.

Please bear in mind that the value you get from this Bootcamp doesn’t lie in the learning materials that we’ll provide to you during the duration of the program. The fact is all the information you could ever need to become a successful entrepreneur and a great leader is available for free online, right now. The most important thing is that you’re aware of what you need to know.

And that is what this Bootcamp is all about. Our mentors and community will guide you step-by-step in figuring out what you need to know and how to best use the available information right in front of you. This Bootcamp is an experience. It’s action-oriented and intense. It’s about doing the work, being seen for who you are, leveraging your unique gifts and getting challenged to grow into your full potential. The real value is in the skills and capabilities you’ll develop, the risks you’ll take and the relationships you’ll build.

What happens if I miss a class?

Students are required to attend each class in-person at the Erasmus University Rotterdam.
