Language Skills and the Boston Entrepreneurship Center have joined together to create a bridge between international students and local academic and professional initiatives.
What is it?
We offer a three month “Start Up Program” for English learners to accelerate their career growth, to create an international network and to gain experience from Boston’s most innovative companies. The program is built around workshops designed by mentors with a wide range of backgrounds and is dedicated to empower students’ with communication skills, foster the creation of academic and professional networks, and encourage them to engage with social entrepreneurship. Our mentors will teach you how to:
- Develop a competitive advantage
- Adapt your career plans as opportunities change
- Strengthen your academic and professional network
- Take proactive risks
Why participate in a Start Up Program?
A sense of entrepreneurship enables a person to maintain a broader scope in all of life’s various situations and empowers a person to quickly understand how to respond to any given situation. Building entrepreneurship skills in yourself invites confidence into your decisions and allows you to coordinate the best efforts of yourself and others toward a common goal.
How do we do it?
Successful international mentors show how you can accelerate your education and career in today’s competitive world. The key is to manage your life as if it were a start-up venture. The founders of Apple, Google and Facebook, invested in themselves, they built their network and they took intelligent risks. They used uncertainty and obstacles to their advantage. Through our workshops you will learn the very same skills that you need to know to start developing your vision and goals.
