Where else will you gain knowledge and experience as an entrepreneur, if not in California?

Why would anyone have an office in a boring industrial zone when you can get wi-fi at the beach? No wonder the founders of  Silicon Beach –  famous for more than 500 technological start-up companies – are geniuses. And in this spirit, the entrepreneur program on the campus of the world-renowned UCLA is perfect for anyone who wants to live in an academic environment where unique location, open mindedness and Californian start-up culture meet.

Together with mentors and professionals from the entrepreneurial field in Los Angeles, participants will learn firsthand how to create and carry out ideas, what leadership and management are, how to create a business plan and how to do marketing and sales.

Everyone knows that California is the ideal spot for advancing your career. Productive days mixed with quality free time spent on sunny beaches – sign me up.
