How the course is taught
Based on the principles of the internationally proven model first developed in Finland, the course is studied full-time from our Penryn Campus. You’ll be matched with other budding entrepreneurs to form a ‘Team Company’ in which you will be an equal owner/shareholder. Typically a private company limited by shares, this is a real business trading with customers and forms a ‘learning team’ with which to innovate, share experiences and build knowledge.
You’ll develop your business knowledge through workshops, team-coaching sessions, dialogue, learning groups, visiting entrepreneurs and your own research. Straight away you apply this to your business so you ‘learn by doing’ and develop as a team entrepreneur. We support you to spot and implement business opportunities and to take on leadership roles in finance, marketing and business operations. We’ll challenge you to experiment and learn from your failures as well as your successes.
