Build entrepreneurial skills in workshops open to members of the Stanford community.

STVP Sparks are extracurricular “pop-up classes” on a variety of topics related to entrepreneurship and innovation. Taught by Stanford lecturers or members of the local entrepreneurial community, each Spark consists of one evening session. This makes Sparks an excellent way to expand your entrepreneurial mindset without adding course units.

Please email Lauren Crout with registration questions.
