Benny Kim,
Startups, and


Experience startups.
Entrepreneurship is not about contests, it’s about delighting your customer. Develop an idea, test it with customers, create a business model, and present to different stakeholders. We help you find your way.


Startup Dream team

The Dream Team will fill the three roles of hipster, hacker, hustler. Learn to work with multidisciplinary teams to have an impact on the market.


TEST the Real world

Test your ideas by building prototypes and sharing them with customers. Talk to people, interview companies, and determine the value you add to the market.


Apply your skills anywhere.
Learn how to use world-class software for your startup idea, and take that experience with you on your next projects or your new job.


Make your own exit.
Take your entrepreneurial skills and training in the direction that fits you. Apply the lessons learned to achieve your goals.


This is much better than an MBA! I have a lot of friends that went to business school, but they told me it’s not worth it, and I think I learned much more about business with you.
