Assessments will include a combination of individual and team assessments:
A mathematical model for entrepreneurial rigor will help assess students’ progress at an individual level in terms of critical competencies, while team assessments will be based on various data points that will include DTP projects, business challenges and hackathons.
Furthermore, students will be provided with a personalized report on their performance which will be both descriptive and predictive in nature, including graphic analysis. Based on this, an individual learning plan will be drawn up and monitored by the mentors.
The batches will be announced on the website and social media platforms. Those interested may fill in the online application/re-enrolment form and the team will get back to you with more details and information. Incase of any queries, feel free to write to firstname.lastname@example.org
It is our belief that in today’s world, talent and strength reside within the team, not the individual.
Hence, every student will be part of a 6–8-member team which is heterogeneous in nature. The team mix includes students across age groups, gender, competencies and location. The reason for doing so is that heterogeneity will allow for different perspectives being put forth and analyzed before arriving at a decision while pursuing a common goal.
Furthermore, team members can leverage each other’s strengths and develop their ideation, collaboration, negotiation and persuasive communication skills. Also, the application form of StartupYou is designed in such a manner that it provides us with data points that will help in the forming of heterogenous teams.
