Details

Watson Institute’s Social Entrepreneurship Fall Semester Incubator 2019 is to be organized in Boulder, Colorado.

At Watson Institute’s Semester Incubator, college students as well as recent graduates, with an early-stage social venture or project, complete their Watson experience. They spend the time as a study away/abroad from a home university, gap semester before attending university, or as a ‘pre-career’ semester after their undergraduate degree. Moreover, the Semester Incubator is a 4-month program preparing next-generation innovators and social entrepreneurs to launch social ventures and unleash a lifetime of impact. Above all, the program equips the most promising members of the next generation with the skills, tools, and network they need to tackle world’s toughest social, economic, and environmental challenges. Also, Watson Institute works with students on an individual basis regarding credit transfers back to their home institutions.

The program is at Watson Institute’s campus in Boulder Colorado located in Chautauqua Park, a National Historic Landmark.

The program journey encompasses

  • A step-by-step methodology to rapidly and systematically validate your business model.
  • Training in the process of building and strengthening an effective team that can pioneer new innovations and markets
  • Testing your cost assumptions, developing a fundraising plan, creating an investors deck
  • Framing solutions so they expose injustice and speak truth to power, incorporate positive psychology, and create better models and systems.
  • Learning and applying entrepreneurial skills and mindset alongside a global community of like-minded and diverse peers.
  • Connect with a powerful network of mentors and social entrepreneurs such as Jerry White, a leader of the Nobel Prize-winning International Campaign to Ban Landmines; Tom Chi who helped invent Google Glass and the self-driving car; and Erin Schrode, the youngest person to run for U.S. Congress.
