The MIT Entrepreneurship Development Programme (EDP) is a week long, high level, intensive executive education course teaching skills for high impact entrepreneurship. It is held onsite at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Boston in January each year. The course is aimed at highly ambitious entrepreneurs from businesses with international potential who want to learn from the best and be the best.
HIE secures a number of places on the EDP course for the most ambitious entrepreneurs in the Highlands and Islands.
The course introduces participants to MIT’s vibrant entrepreneurial culture; world class commercialisation and technology transfer system and connects participants to a global entrepreneurial network. Participants learn how to break down the elements of successful business growth into a step by step process and how this formula for success can be applied to their own business or organisation.
