Innovation Lab

Innovation Lab

Innovation Lab is an intensive and interactive learning lab for startup founders to develop the skills and competencies needed to be effective leaders/founders. Gain essential knowledge from the Valley’s most renowned consultants and workshop leaders offering the “how-to’s” of developing successful startups.

Serious Startup Training for Serious Founders

Community and Collaborative Learning is the philosophy of the Lab’s workshop design. You’ll be teamed up with other founders to work on homework and lesson materials as you apply these to your startup. This collective skill sharing and collaborative environment helps founders deepen their learning experience, while further developing a network that often can provide “key turnaround” introductions and referrals in the Valley.
