In collaboration between Stanford’s Graduate School of Business and the Doerr School of Sustainability, the Summer Ecopreneurial Immersion Program offers Stanford graduate students an experiential learning opportunity to evaluate a sustainability-focused venture idea over the summer.
Entrepreneurial knowledge and skills are best learned by doing.  And we believe startup ideas are best evaluated through an immersive process of understanding customer needs, formulating and testing hypotheses about the product or service, value proposition, go-to-market strategy, and value creation model.  

This program provides students who will be returning to Stanford after the summer the ability to evaluate their own venture ideas full-time for 8 weeks over the summer, with stipend, coaching, workshops, and a supportive community.

Instructors: N/A
Faculty Principal Investigator (PI) Required?: No
