This course provides real world, experience-based learning on what it’s like to actually start and develop a new venture, either within an existing company, or as a new startup company. The main objective is to allow you to directly experience the earliest phases of an entrepreneurial startup process. Focus will thus be on building and testing a novel business idea.

Target group

Bocconi Summer School offers a selective three-week study program open to motivated students enrolled in a Bachelor Program, preferably in their third-to-last, second-to-last or last year of undergraduate studies.

Course aim

In this course you will be asked to actively engage in developing the initial business idea, but also in talking to potential customers, suppliers, partners, and competitors, as you confront the chaos and uncertainty of how a real new venture actually emerges from the entrepreneurs’ efforts.
