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.

For alumni to register and for all other registration questions, including disability-related accommodations and services, please email Lauren Crout noting the Spark(s) you’d like to register for.
