WDI designs and delivers impactful training programs for entrepreneurs at all levels. WDI’s entrepreneurship training programs draw on the latest thinking and tools in entrepreneurship training and development and customize this to the local context. The end result is a world-class training program of great practical value to participants.
Train the Trainers
WDI trains faculty members and trainers in how to deliver high-impact entrepreneurship training, drawing on global best practices. WDI faculty members introduce local faculty to new curricula, tools and techniques and help them integrate these resources into their entrepreneurship programs.
WDI consults with organizations on how to increase the impact of their entrepreneurship development efforts. WDI consultants provide strategic insights to organizations on how to evolve their service offerings to better meet the needs of local entrepreneurs.
Curriculum and Faculty Development
WDI works with schools and organizations to build robust entrepreneurship curricula. After gaining an understanding of the local market and entrepreneurship ecosystem, we introduce new tools and techniques for entrepreneurship training and then work with faculty to customize the content for their unique educational settings. WDI faculty affiliates offer train-the-trainer workshops to help in-country faculty members and trainers teach the new entrepreneurship curriculum.
WDI works with universities to help their faculty members build robust, locally relevant content for use in traditional classrooms, as well as online. Frequently, this content includes case studies based on local startups and entrepreneurial organizations. WDI also designs and delivers workshops on case teaching and writing and supports faculty members throughout the case publication process.
WDI develops customized mentorship programs based on global best practices and local market insights. These can include: mentor training, mentor-mentee training materials, guidelines for selecting and matching mentorship pairs, and survey tools for continually assessing and improving the program.
