After a highly successful first cohort of the Global Innovation Catalyst iX Program Azerbaijan held January - March 2020 in Baku, we are pleased to announce that we will be conducting our second cohort in the near-term.
Please note that in consideration of the COVID-19 measures to protect public health with guidelines issued by the World Health Organization (WHO), a fully online program (with weekly face-to-face meetings replaced by webinars) may be facilitated.
The GIC iX Innovation Execution Program Azerbaijan is a 10-week, blended (online and in-person) program designed around the Stanford Center for Professional Development Idea to Market (I2M) curriculum. This unique program drives innovative thinking around cutting edge business and product development practices to launch new ventures in startups, corporations, and government entities alike.
The program combines decades of Silicon Valley innovation expertise along with local, contextualized mentorship, and world-class in-person workshops to create an unparalleled experience for a cohort of 12 teams (48 participants comprised of students, entrepreneurs, medium/large corporate executives and government ministries). Participants will partake on an in-depth journey across all phases of new venture development, from concept development, through planning, to execution. Upon completion, participants will receive a Certificate of Completion in the GIC iX Program.
The program will consist of 8 Modules, that will be delivered by international and local industry experts, mentors, and entrepreneurs during the in-person workshops, where they will share their extensive experience in the field.
At Global Innovation Catalyst (GIC), we believe innovation is the driver of growth and continued market relevance. We bring the power of a global network of thought leaders and practitioners to catalyze and empower you to solve your existing challenges while simultaneously developing tools critical to creating new products and services that enhance your organization, deliver market value and move society forward.
