Course for entrepreneurs looking to build their vision into a thriving business or launch a new product

If you’ve got a new idea for a business—or you are an existing business looking to launch a new product or service—Aspire is for you.

The only real prerequisites are (1) having an idea, (2) being willing to question, shape, and fine-tune that idea, and (3) being excited to share that idea with others in a supportive, collaborative, and welcoming environment. 

You’ll leave the program with a deeper understanding of how to create a sustainable business, articulate your model, and repeat the process with your next great idea. 

What to Expect

Community
Live, in-person, interactive sessions
Sinapis is big on relationships. Community with the right mentors, peers, and support network is vital. So from the start, classes are live, in-person, interactive sessions where you engage with others in debates, live simulation games, and problem sets.
Commitment
On average 6 hours per week for 9 weeks
Aspire is offered in different formats, such as Saturday mornings or one evening per week. Each session lasts 3.5 hours. However, you should expect to spend 6-8 hours per week across class time, fieldwork, and study.
Curriculum
Refine your ideas with help from other entrepreneurs
Aspire’s training is a discussion-based course where entrepreneurs refine their ideas while engaging each other. The curriculum is tailored with local case studies exploring challenges that you are actually likely to face. During sessions, you will learn from the challenges and successes from established entrepreneurs that visit the class.
