Learning Curve: M3 Accelerator

Back

Join the 2016 Cohort!

M3 is Learning Curve’s signature program. This is a fast-paced learning experience. On a daily basis, participants can expect to gain exposure to fascinating developments in STEAMD (Science Tech Engineering Art Math and Design) that are a mix of lo and hi tech concepts.

We challenge participants to apply what they are learning to solve challenges, compete and more importantly to push their capacity to learn, synthesize and innovate on the fly. We want all of our participants to get comfortable and confident with complex problem-solving and the role of design when formulating solutions. We expect our Entrepreneurs-in-Residence (EIR’s) to apply what they are rapidly learning to the formation, launch and growth of their own start-up ventures and to their burgeoning relationships with each other as co-founders and to a community of stakeholders.

Skills Acquisition

We recognize that everyone may not want to be a scientist, engineer, designer or programmer, but we want to make acquiring STEM skills less intimidating and 100% fun.

Some of the skills that our Entrepreneurs-in-Residence (EIR’s) can expect to acquire include:
  1. Computer Programming
  2. Public Speaking
  3. Engineering
  4. Design
