Development 4Startups Program

Fast growth of a company is a difficult and bumpy road, and the life of a manager is a time of constant difficult choices. We know this, because our whole professional path has been about collecting experience which we now want to share with you. We have also invited Competency Partners to work with us, whose unique knowledge, and their method of sharing it are on a truly masterful level. We believe, that building and developing competencies is as important, if not more important, than providing capital. Because while money can be fleeting, knowledge and experience stays with us forever.

mMBA for Managers

A start-up is a very fast creation and keeping pace with its development demands an influx of constant new competencies, as well as developing already existing ones. This is where the idea of miniMBA came from – a 10-day business course for Founders and Managers. In principle, the mMBA offers a wide compendium of managerial knowledge, which can be instantly put into practice, which is why it included more workshops over boring theory. Classes are led by our General Partners at Level2, as well as our Competency Partners.
