Endless Frontier Labs MBA Class 

The Endless Frontier Labs class is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn about the selection, management and financing of massively scalable startups through a series of interactions with early-stage science and technology companies and their potential investors. This course is suitable for students pursuing careers in entrepreneurship, innovation, strategy, entrepreneurial finance, venture capital and new product development.

The EFL MBA Class is administered in conjunction with the nine-month Endless Frontier Labs program which has emerged as among the world’s most selective programs for accelerating startups working on breakthrough science and technologies.  

Experiential Learning

Work hands-on with Life Sciences, Digital Tech and Deep Tech startups in this full-year course. MBA2’s (including but not limited to: Langone MBA, Tech MBA, JD/MBA, MD/MBA) admitted to the program will work alongside EFL staff and world-renowned mentors in helping commercialize ground-breaking science and technology.

Scope

During the fall semester, students will focus on 

  1. Evaluating early stage startups  
  2. Startup business models 

During the spring semester, students will focus on:

  1. Resourcing startup business models (startup  financing) 
  2. Implementing business models and scaling

Students will be instrumental in the selection of the startups in the next 2023-2024 EFL cohort.  Students will then be paired with startups to provide hands-on support to help execute business priorities.  Students gain invaluable first-hand experience of the entrepreneurial mindset by taking part in the life of a startup, playing a vital role in the development of their startups.

Students will attend up to five EFL Meeting Days. The EFL Meetings are core to the EFL Program.  At EFL Meetings, startups engage with our network of highly accomplished mentors, including industry leaders, successful entrepreneurs, VC investors and technical experts to set short-term goals.

Learning from these interactions, students work with their startups and provide hands-on support to achieve those EFL goals. This invaluable interaction allows students to reframe their MBA class learnings and perspectives to tackle the challenges their startups face.
