Cascador Program 2020 for Mid-stage Nigerian Entrepreneurs

Deadline: August 30, 2020

Applications for the Cascador Program 2020 are now open. The Cascador Program is an intensive, in-depth examination of your interpersonal skills and business plans. The program will be held on the Lagos Business School campus from November 9 to 13, 2020. Cascador’s mission is to help mid-stage entrepreneurs grow their businesses by working with successful American and Nigerian entrepreneurs.

The process begins prior to the on-site program and continues for six months afterward.

  • Personal development is the foundation of professional growth. Prior to the program, you will be asked to complete a questionnaire that generates a report about your personality type. You will have a personal, one hour video session prior to the program to interpret your report, and discuss how your personality type can work best with people of other styles. They will practice these interpersonal skills during interaction with the faculty and your peers.
  • You will be required to submit your business history and future plan prior to the program. Your history and plans will be discussed with faculty by video prior to the program, so that the faculty can identify what support and resources you need.
