Summer Intensives

Design Thinking / Storytelling

The Arts Meet Bizness ENTREPRENEURSHIP + INNOVATION Summer Intensive Program is a 1 or 2-week interactive program, where entrepreneurs learn and apply the skills they need for innovation in today’s fast paced business environment.

Working in teams, students learn the value of shared leadership and are introduced to the creative process used in design thinking to solve problems and develop new ideas that have value. Exercises in futures thinkingprototyping, and ideation allow students to step out of their comfort zones and tap into their imagination capacity.

The program also puts a strong focus on storytelling. Daily exercises develop the verbal and physical communication skills required from entrepreneurs to share their ideas, and to build the confidence needed to overcome business challenges and manage negotiations.

Originally developed for Long Island University Brooklyn’s Center forEntrepreneurship and Innovation at the Business School under the leadership of Dean Edward Rogoff (Summer 2016), the Summer Intensive Program continues to strengthen entrepreneurial minds: LIU Brooklyn (Summers 2016, 2017), Iona College Hynes Institute for Entrepreneurship & Innovation (Summer 2018).
