SEIC’s flagship program for higher education is the University SEED Launch Pad (USLP). USLP is based on the principles of the Lean Launch Pad taught in Silicon Valley and in more than 350 leading universities such as Harvard Business School, Stanford University, Columbia University, and New York University. It is ideal for senior students majoring in business related areas and MBA students.
USLP offers experiential learning through hands-on training in entrepreneurship. The USLP is focused on learning how to rapidly develop and test ideas by gathering massive amounts of customer and marketplace feedback. Nine out of ten startups fail by not validating their ideas early on with real-life customers. In order to mitigate this issue, participants of the program will learn how to get out of the building and search for the real pain points and unmet needs of customers. With this, the entrepreneur will find proper solutions and establish a suitable business model that reflects a real need in the market and is repeatable and scalable.
The course is offered in both Arabic and English languages and is taught by business leaders who act as mentors and potential investors. Get in touch here.
