— Instructors given step-by-step guidance on how to manage their students' journeys
The Global Dojo
The classroom of the future is not a 'room' but the totality of people and things you learn from. Face to face instruction, remote instructors, digital content, current entrepreneurs and fellow students create a hybrid environment for learning. Venture Dojo gives students the power to construct their own classroom by engaging the world’s best entrepreneurial teachers and mentors.
The best universities don’t just teach, they prepare their students to lead. Leadership skills cannot be acquired simply by reading or attending class—they must be cultivated, developed and practiced. There is no better way to practice leadership than to build your own startup.
Most entrepreneurship programs follow the Lean Startup methodology that focuses on developing startups through highly prescriptive frameworks that real entrepreneurs avoid. In contrast, Venture Dojo focuses on developing entrepreneurs. The pedagogy is student-centric, helping each student develop an entrepreneurial mindset and cultivate the confidence to lead.
Teacher training is key. Venture Dojo provides hands-on instructional support through intensive teacher training both onsite and online. After getting certified, instructors get weekly support within the classroom as well as assistance managing their courses throughout the semester.
Venture Dojo is a unique teaching system that allows universities to teach the same entrepreneurship and innovation courses taught at UC Berkeley.
