Nerve’s Emerging Leaders Programs offer unique opportunities for college students, recent college graduates and MBAs to make a difference in (and learn the ropes of) an entrepreneurial technology startup.
Our Emerging Leaders gain deep insights and domain knowledge into their respective fields in a startup/entrepreneurial environment, as well:
Managing in Complex Environments: In most cases, emerging leaders will be learning on the job in a very high-pressure environment. Maintaining a healthy work-life balance and an open schedule for dealing with the important issues of the moment is essential in today’s workforce.
Self-Paced Study: Coming from different educational backgrounds, our Emerging Leaders develop their practical knowledge and skills that are not taught in educational institutions.
Social Learning: Exposure to peers – especially peers from other functional areas – is essential in learning how to be a business leader. Furthermore, the learning environment is often the best, low-pressure social context in which team members from different functional areas can get to know each other and forge the networks and alliances so crucial for a company’s success.
Real-World Application: Emerging Leaders are prepared to apply concepts and tools learned in universities to real-world situations.
Access to Experts: Skilled, expert practitioners help connect the dots from abstract concepts to real-world, industry-specific applications for our Emerging Leaders
