Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship and Kyiv School of Economics launch a bootcamp for Ukrainian startups

Martin Trust Center for Entrepreneurship and Kyiv School of Economics will hold a joint bootcamp in March to strengthen and develop Ukrainian technology startups. 

Kyiv School of Economics (KSE) is an undergraduate and graduate school of economics and management in Kyiv, Ukraine. The mission of the school is building the intellectual foundation for a strong economy of Ukraine.

“Challenges create rising demand for new skills, approaches and values by those teaching, researching and studying management alike. Some business schools are reacting directly, with few more on the frontline than the Kyiv School of Economics, which continues to function under the threat of attack while mobilizing wider international support for Ukraine’s humanitarian crisis” (Financial Times).

“We share knowledge and provide training in innovation-oriented entrepreneurship based on proven courses, programs and mentoring from our team. The assistance of our experts to Ukrainian startups and innovative projects can become a boost for their post-war recovery and, as a result, the development of the country. This is our contribution to the victory of light over darkness”, – Bill Aulet, Managing Director, Ethernet Investors Professor of the Practice, MIT Sloan.

“Martin Trust Center for MIT entrepreneurship & KSE Graduate Business School joint BootCamp will provide entrepreneurs with the knowledge to turn ideas into successful businesses. Participants will work with experienced mentors for five days to develop and test their business models”, – Valentyna Sakhno, Head of KSE Graduate Business School.

Teams that have a developed project or business idea (any field of activity) will be selected for the program. The recruitment of participants is scheduled to be completed on February 19. Then the teachers and mentors who are most appropriate to the needs and goals of the participants will be selected. The bootcamp is expected to start on March 17.
