Boulder, CO – During the COVID-19 pandemic, the virtual Watson Semester Accelerator was launched to accelerate the ventures and careers of college students, recent graduates, and gap-year students with an early-stage social venture. During this 4-month program, a cohort of next generation entrepreneurs convene virtually to tackle complex problems, such as climate change, inequality, access to education, and more. Selected students leverage training, mentorship, and community to accelerate their ventures during a time when the world needs brave leadership and creative solutions to issues of complex injustices.
Watson Master Course teachers are the world’s foremost leaders, entrepreneurs, and practitioners. Each week a Master Course teacher shares their entrepreneurial journey and experience followed by one on one mentorship with the Watson students.
Going virtual has the benefit of allowing us to share a taste of the Watson experience. We have the privilege to offer four open virtual Master Courses to those interested in our programs. Join us for one or all of these courses led by diverse and powerful speakers!
