Take your business to the next level
The Stanford Latino Entrepreneurship Initiative- Education Scaling Program is an 8-week hybrid program. Participants will spend two weekends at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, immersed in lectures, workshops, networking, and opportunities to redefine their growth mindset. We offer the program twice per year, Spring and Fall. Cick here to apply for the upcoming cohort.
- Latino business owners that have generated $1M+ in revenue or have raised $500K of external funding. Non-profits must have a budget of $1M+.
- Business must be headquartered in the U.S.
- Latino business owners that have a clear vision and are invested in their community.
The Scaling Program is 8-weeks long and requires approximately 8-10 hours per week, including a 1-hour weekly call with a mentor. This online program requires two weekends at Stanford Graduate School of Business (the opening and closing weekends).
Each seat in the program is valued at over $11,000. Due to the generosity of our sponsors, the program tuition is $1,000 for entrepreneurs.
$1,000 is the total cost of the program.
Yes, we encourage business owners from all industries to apply. We are proud that our cohorts have represented over 40+ industries, both brick & mortar and tech!
Although our preferred criteria is that a company has either generated $1M in revenue (if brick & mortar), or has raised $500K, we do hold a few select spots for entrepreneurs who do not meet the revenue requirements, but who the committee believes are high potential individuals and have a scalable business. For those applicants, we recommend emphasizing what makes you type of individual worth taking a bet on in addition to highlighting how your work will impact the community. You will also need to do a very good job of clearly articulating your vision and where you want to take your company in the future. Applicants who are not accepted, but have applied, will be taken into consideration for future cohorts, as well as invited to our optional webinars.
No, you are only required to travel to Stanford twice– for the kickoff weekend and for the closing ceremony. The 7-week course occurs online.
