What You’ll Learn

BizSmart Global operating on Stanford University campus is a unique, intense, one week skill-based design competition workshop for top notch young entrepreneurs to learn how to turn ideas into cool, value added products!


As one of the team leaders I was responsible for analyzing ideas, considering budgetary and design constraints and keeping the team motivated and on task. BizSmart wasn’t just an experience for me. BizSmart taught me the fundamentals of business, and revealed leadership capabilities that I never thought I had. I would recommend BizSmart to any student who is interested in learning business. – Zach, 2015 Graduate

Bring your cool idea, and as an individual, pitch that idea to others to create an “on-the spot” team to work with you. Already have a group of 3-5 individuals working on an idea? Have them sign up with you and take it to the next level in this competition. Maybe you love the start-up idea and want to join a team to have that dynamic experience. We have you covered, as well. We will also partner with a Silicon Valley company and have your team work on an idea that might just be added to their product roadmap.

Whichever way you choose to participate, each team will take their idea from concept to prototype and make a compelling 2–3 minute crowdfunding video. Teams will gather user experience input, develop a pricing model and develop strategies for marketing, sales and distribution.

Participants will learn and practice business and entrepreneurial skills including design thinking, teamwork, leadership, collaboration, problem solving, idea conceptualization and public speaking. Entrepreneurs from Silicon Valley lead the workshop using a unique, project based learning model developed by executive development experts at the General Electric Company, called “Learn – Do – Check – Act”. Teams will compete for the best product design and video.

houseResidential Housing Available

We’re excited to announce a residential option on the beautiful Stanford University campus for the July 17–22, 2017 program. Check in on Sunday, July 16th after 3pm and check out on Sunday, July 23rd before 10am for a total of 7 nights. Availability is very limited and we expect the housing to go quickly. This is a unique opportunity for your aspiring entrepreneurs to live on campus at one of the premier universities in the world.

Airport arrival and departure transportation services for residential students MUST BE arranged by parents with the service of their choice that best meets their needs. One service that specializes in transportation for young people is Kids Kab. Kids Kab is run by the owner-operator, Liz Marino who may be reached at (408) 342-0100. This is not the only option and parents should select the transportation service that best suits your needs.

It is important that BizSmart Global be informed of your student’s arrival time at the airport so that we can anticipate when they will arrive at Santa Clara Housing. We also need to know their departure schedule for the airport at the end of BizSmart Global and to know when transportation services are scheduled to pick them up. Please send your student’s flight arrival and departure information and who you arrange ground transportation with to Geeta Ajmera, Director Student Admissions and Logistics.
