Entrepreneurs’ Academy

The Entrepreneurs’ Academy (”EA”) provides an overview of key business issues in starting a technology company for the aspiring as well as experienced entrepreneurs.

Specifically, this one day seminar features discussion on the planning and preparation phase prior to starting up a company by experienced entrepreneurs. Other topics to be discussed include legal issues to consider when forming and structuring a company, how to market your idea to potential investors and venture capitalists, and how to get and close beta customers. Unlike other educational and training programs, the Academy will also have a panel of mentors, who are experienced entrepreneurs, executives or investors with expertise in different aspects of the company building cycle. The mentors will provide ongoing mentoring to VSVN paying members who attend the seminar.

Many great ideas and innovations are never brought to market due to lack of business know-how. With the Entrepreneurs Academy we hope to inspire and provide the business intelligence for entrepreneurs to just make it happen,” said Huy Do, chairman and president of VSVN. “The Entrepreneurs Academy also distinguishes itself with an ongoing mentoring panel of veteran professionals in high-tech space that will help VSVN’s members even after the seminar has ended. It will be an invaluable resource to the community.”
