The Hirshberg Entrepreneurship Institute (formerly the ‘Social Venture Institute’ and the ‘Stonyfield Entrepreneurship Institute’) is a high impact 2-day boot camp conceived by Gary Hirshberg in 1998 based on his experience leading Stonyfield Farm from its start as a 7-cow operation in 1983 to its current nearly $400MM annual sales level. 16 Institutes have served hundreds of entrepreneurs across numerous business sectors in CA, NY, NH, MA, Toronto, Vancouver and Auckland, NZ. This will be the first time the Institute has come to Boulder, CO.
By offering a highly interactive, intimate venue for networking, storytelling, and problem solving, the Institute offers a safe, stimulating environment for hundreds of for-profit and not-for-profit entrepreneurs to learn about financing, marketing, organizational challenges, finding personal balance, managing change, and the many other areas that are fundamental to growing an enterprise. The "case" method approach ensures a practical and grounded “real world” experience. Participants take home a wealth of pragmatic and useful ideas and strategies that can be immediately put to work in a growing enterprise.
98% of participants have rated the Institute as either excellent or very good in terms of:
