Unconventional education model enlists the help of well-known social and tech gurus.
When you consider the cost of earning an MBA–that can easily exceed $100,000–most people begin to seek alternative ways to network and gain professional insights. Kane Sarhan and Shaila Ittycheria are co-founders of Enstitute, a program for young aspiring students to be mentored by some of New York’s top entrepreneurs.
Enstitute currently enlists 31 well-regarded NYC entrepreneurs from 15 different companies who are participating in the mentorship program. Some of these mentors include founders of Thrillist, HowAboutWe, Nestio, Bit.ly, Pixable, Flavorpill and SinglePlatform.
