Through a 10-week, online, webinar-based course, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to apply these concepts, as you’ll also be embedded as an intern at one of today’s most innovative veterinary healthcare companies, working on real problems that matter.

You’ll also learn from guest speakers, including veterinary startup founders as well as other leaders in the profession. You’ll learn all about the business model canvas, the lean startup, and design thinking in order to help you understand how to run a business in a lean and efficient manner. You’ll gain a deeper sense of business acumen and confidence, all while developing lasting relationships that will help you long into your career.
