The MEST program 

MEST offers a 12-month, full time, fully sponsored program in which the students – known as Entrepreneurs in Training (EITs) – complete a graduate-level course in software development, business and communications. 

The MEST program provides rigorous entrepreneurial training and extensive hands-on project work, designed to ensure EITs master industry-proven methodologies for developing startups. This coursework is supplemented by a series of guest lectures, featuring the experiences and insights of internationally-recognized executives and successful entrepreneurs.

The course culminates in an investor pitch and the chance to receive seed funding and enter the MEST incubator.

We provide world-class training with the help of an internationally recognized faculty who each bring more than 20 years of experience in the software business in the United States, Europe, or Asia.

Our teaching fellows hail from some of the best universities around the world like Oxford, Stanford, Harvard etc. We also offer our entrepreneurs-in-training the opportunity to be mentored by real life entrepreneurs, CEO’s and other executives from all over Silicon Valley and Europe via our Guest Lecture Series. These lectures have featured executives of Uber, Facebook, Safaricom, Samsung, Interswitch, and many more.
