The Bachelor of High-Tech Entrepreneurship program methodology combines the fundamentals of technology entrepreneurship, pioneered in Silicon Valley, with the processes developed by leading technology entrepreneurs, accelerators such as Y Combinator and company builders such as Rocket Internet to quickly start and accelerate technology companies. [+]

This program is taught in ENGLISH. Harbour.Space is a unique blend of academics program, start-up accelerator, venture builder, and real world experience designed to prepare students to become the next generation of successful high tech entrepreneurs. The Bachelor of High-Tech Entrepreneurship program methodology combines the fundamentals of technology entrepreneurship, pioneered in Silicon Valley, with the processes developed by leading technology entrepreneurs, accelerators such as Y Combinator and company builders such as Rocket Internet to quickly start and accelerate technology companies. To gain practical experience alongside the theory, students form teams and work on real world startup companies in those teams. Students should be prepared to work in a highly competitive environment that will challenge their skills and perseverance every day. Teams will be matched with mentors, and the best teams will be selected to pitch their ideas to investors. PROGRAM STRUCTURE 1 Year The first year of the High-Tech Entrepreneurship Bachelor program can be seen as a basic starter pack for tomorrow’s entrepreneurs. Students enter the program with an idea they want to make reality. We start with the skills of presenting an idea well – because a lot of genius goes unnoticed in the world simply because an idea is communicated inadequately. Students will work on the basis of Lean/Pitch Canvas frameworks for idea validation, identity and communication strategy and they learn how to make their idea pass the business model test. Students learn how to identify opportunities and obstacles in business entrepreneurship. Furthermore, students are immersed in all the business basics of running a start-up: lean business models, business validation, business plan preparation, USP/SVP identification, etc. Modules From Zero to Hero Digital Product Development Design Thinking Needs Finding and Concept Creation Lean Start-up The Start-up Garage: Testing and Launch Start-up Company Legal Environment Start-up Ecosystems Writing a Business Plan Identity and Communications Sales Basics The Startup Stack Start-ups for Extreme Affordability Technical Project Management Negotiations Big Data & Emerging Technologies Capstone Project Seminars & Workshops 2 Year The second year delves deeply dive into building a lean start-up organization while learning essential strategic and analytical skills. The objective of this academic year is to find the elusive product/market fit and build an MVP. Students are expected to talk to potential customers, learn essential sales techniques, become able to find and test various customer acquisition channels, and develop effective messaging and positioning. Teams will be expected to execute their sales and marketing plans, define and build and MVP and test it with early customers. This is often the hardest part of the journey for start-ups and the programs rigor will expand the abilities of any student and push them to reach their full potential. By the end of the year, students will have an MVP that’s not only validated using frameworks but also tested with early customers. Throughout the process the teams are assisted by mentors and take advantage of opportunities to pitch their ideas to investors and start-up competitions. Modules New Venture Marketing Digital Assets The Power of Storytelling in Business Customer Acquisition for Start-ups Business Models / Business Model Innovation Hiring & Leading Teams Data Driven Marketing & Sales Social Media Marketing Mobile Marketing Growth Hacking Digital Strategy Building and Managing Email Campaigns Essentials of Strategic Communication Viral Marketing E - Research & Surveys CRM & Loyalty Programs E- Commerce Selling & Presenting Angel and Venture Capital Early Stage Company Valuation & Financial Modelling Taxes and Business Strategy Social Entrepreneurship and Social Innovation High-Performance Leadership Programmatic & RTB Capstone Project 3 Year In the third year, student start-ups will transform into real companies. Student start-ups are expected to have found their product/market fit so they will start scaling, and doubling down on strategies that worked at early stage to turn them into real growth. The third year is essentially about transforming a lean start-up into a scalable venture backed business. Students will learn how to automate and scale into a properly running organization, how to build high-performing sales teams, how to lead and hire for a fast growing organization and how to create and nurture company culture as the company grows. In this final year students will be pushed to their limit as they turn their startups into businesses while planning, designing and executing on much more complex strategies as they prepare to raise venture funding, and subsequently become the next unicorn. The year will culminate in a Demo Day where student start-ups will compete in for investors, mentors and the student body.
