POSTPONED: Invitation to MIT Entrepreneurship School

VIS – DaVinchi
Thormøhlensgate 51

MIT Entrepreneurship School is a unique possibility for entrepreneurs, and intrapreneurs. Throughout an intensive three-day programme you will learn the methodology, disciplined entrepreneurship, by working on relevant cases.


«The Spirit of a Pirate, the Skills of a Navy Seal»

This is one of our favourite quotes from Professor Bill Aulet who will facilitate the course. Aulet is the Managing Director for Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship and the brain behind «Diciplined Entrepreneurship» methodology. He is regarded as one of the world’s best lecturers within the field.

Prior to joining MIT, Bill had a 25-year record of accomplishment of success in business himself. He has directly raised more than $100 million in funding for his companies and more importantly has led to the creation of hundreds of millions of dollars in market value in those companies.

The purpose of the Entrepreneurship Programme is to strengthen your entrepreneurial expertise and potential. You will achieve entrepreneurial skills and be equipped with a proven, systematic and rigorous approach to grow your business to new heights.

The programme is facilitated in a co-operation between GCE Ocean Technology and VIS.

Prior to the programme there will be a webinar with Bill Aulet from Boston, 13. May  16.00-19.00, at VIS in Bergen. The webinar is mandatory.
