Stanford Seed partners with entrepreneurs in emerging markets to build thriving enterprises that transform lives.
The Seed Transformation Program (STP)
is a year-long, part-time intensive leadership program for CEOs/founders of established businesses. Stanford Graduate School of Business faculty and other experts deliver strategy sessions for CEOs and their management teams, in which leaders learn and apply skills, tools, and mindsets to drive growth and innovation. CEOs and their management team members will be challenged to refine their strategy and value proposition, and set a course for scalable growth and impact. During and after the STP, leaders will network with approximately 1,000 entrepreneurs from across Africa and South Asia - joining current and past participants. Covid policy:
The program will include both in-person and online components. Any in-person components may be shifted online if health conditions do not permit in-person delivery. A reliable and strong internet connection will be required to derive maximum value from the program.
Minimum qualifications for admission:
- You are the key decision-maker or owner/co-owner of your company
- Your management team includes at least two other people
- Your company’s annual revenue for the last fiscal year was between $300,000 and $15,000,000 USD
We seek a diverse mix of leaders with a transformation mindset, and both commercially driven and impact focused enterprises. There are no 'correct answers' in this application.
