Video Introduction
The Corporate Entrepreneur (TCE): For Teams
Meet faculty director Yossi Feinberg and learn how this unique program helps you drive innovation in your organization. Find out how you can create value for your company by bringing a team to TCE. 

KEY BENEFITS

Bringing 4–6 employees from the same organization to TCE offers a unique opportunity to work on a company-specific project. Key benefits of participating as a team include:

  • Learn the tools for leading a new venture within the context of your own organization’s culture and processes
  • Ideate and execute a specific project that can potentially transform your organization, create a new revenue stream, or revolutionize a process
  • Step outside the corporate environment and gain exposure to Silicon Valley innovation to create impact for your organization
  • Gain access to multiple exclusive project meetings as a team with faculty and a coach, as well as a dedicated team space

Individual participants not part of a dedicated company team will be placed into teams by the Faculty Director. There is no guarantee their project idea will be chosen for the team to work on; however, a team from the same company is guaranteed to work on their own project.

TO QUALIFY AS A TEAM
  • Attend with 4–6 participants from the same company (may be an existing team or one created for the program); multiple titles, functional areas, and levels accepted
  • Have access to a company sponsor and mentor who will vet project ideas, advise, and provide necessary resources
  • Commit to having dedicated time to drive the project forward between the on-campus modules
APPLICATION PROCESS
  • Participants submit individual applications through the TCE website
  • The project the team brings to the program should be an idea both the team and its sponsors are looking to explore, evaluate, and potentially implement for the organization
