About the Program
Sinapis Entrepreneurship Academy is a 4-month mini-MBA for entrepreneurs offered in partnership with Acton School of Business (a 1 year MBA in USA). Sinapis is committed to building Kingdom businesses around the world, so 25% of its curriculum is focused on Kingdom business principles that help entrepreneurs relate their faith to their business.
Our curriculum covers customer development, marketing and sales, finance & accounting, human resources & management, and operations. We teach entrepreneurs the essentials of what they need to know and do to start and grow a business.
Participants spend 6 hours each week in a highly interactive and practical class at our partner’s facility and spend approximately 8 hours each week completing practical fieldwork assignments called milestones, which are directly related to what they’re learning in class.
Classes are interactive in nature with many case studies, debates, live simulation games, problem sets and videos and we only teach extremely practical & actionable material & force you to apply concepts learned in your business.
Graduates (in eligible countries) are given the opportunity to compete in our business plan competition for a USD 10,000 grant and a spot in our accelerator program, Fast Track Fellows.
