Program Description


MHTIconA Harbour.Space is a unique blend of academics program, a start-up accelerator, venture builder, and real-world experience designed to prepare students to become the next generation of successful high tech entrepreneurs.

The Master of High Tech Entrepreneurship methodology combines the fundamentals of technology entrepreneurship, pioneered in Silicon Valley, with the processes developed by leading technology entrepreneurs and accelerators, such as Y Combinator and company builders such as Rocket Internet to quickly start and accelerate technology companies. To gain practical experience alongside the theory, students form teams and work on real-world startup companies within those teams. Students should be prepared to work in a highly competitive environment that will challenge their skills and perseverance every day. Teams will be matched with mentors, and the best teams will be selected to pitch their ideas to investors.
