About the course
‘Growth Programme for Entrepreneurs’ is based on the highly successful 'Management Programme for Entrepreneurs and Family Businesses' (MPEFB) programme that has been offered to 12 batches of Entrepreneurs and Family Business Owners. Starting this academic year, IIMB has redesigned the programme to focus exclusively on the growth needs of Entrepreneurs.
This program is targeted at entrepreneurs from a wide range of sectors who have achieved product-market fit and are looking to scale up their venture. The objective of this intensive four-week program spread across three months is to provide systematic inputs on the operating context, organizational design, self-transformation and leadership skills needed to take the venture to the next orbit. The program will include lectures, case discussions, experiential learning, coaching, workshops and interactions with industry captains.
Each week of the program focuses on a specific objective. Week 1 will focus on the business environment in which the venture operates. Week 2 will focus on the venture itself and how it needs to reorient to achieve scale. Week 3 will focus on transforming the entrepreneur and helping them to become effective leaders. Week 4 will focus on sharpening the growth plans of each participant.
