This radically different pathway gives you the opportunity to set-up and run your own projects and ventures. Inspired by the pioneering Finnish ‘Tiimiakatemia’ approach based on the Partus Method, we designed this program collaboratively together with our Evergreen Entrepreneurship students and were the first to introduce this program to the United States.

In the first few weeks you’ll form a Team Company of up to 20 students, and work on real projects with the potential to earn your own income while gaining entrepreneurial experience.

As a Team Entrepreneur, you’ll work in your own office environment virtually or in the classroom in our innovative SEM II C 4107 or we will interact with you virtually and fully online. You will create and manage projects around your passions, attend directors meetings, manage budgets and build valuable contacts and networks.

Your Team Company will run its own training sessions with the support of an experienced team coach. You’ll also join professional workshops and personal development sessions to ensure you develop your entrepreneurial potential.
