The Stanford Technology Ventures Program (STVP) plays a large role at Stanford University in educating future scientists and engineers about high-technology entrepreneurship. STVP believes that in addition to technical skills, students need to know how to identify market opportunities and to take leadership roles in business. To meet this goal, we offer introductory courses, and advanced courses, such as entrepreneurial marketing, finance, strategy, and innovation. Our courses range from large public lecture series such as the Entrepreneurial Though Leaders, to intensive, year-long work/study programs such as the Mayfield Fellows Program.
In addition to our efforts on campus, STVP is dedicated to encouraging and supporting entrepreneurship education efforts in universities around the world.
