A bootcamp aimed at folks planning a start-up or in the early stages of the startup.
Graduates from iKen bootcamp.
What I loved about iKen is the way it made me push my boundaries, to make the transition from the corporate world to life as an entrepreneur. At iKen, each assignment forces you to dig deep and think about why you are doing what you are doing. In the process, you equip yourself with skills that are essential for an entrepreneur and learn a framework for decision-making that is valid at every step of your journey. Also, you gain a wonderful support system as a bonus! Read my blog post for more details!Tanuka Dutaa
There are a few things that amaze me about Iken ( I'm midway through the course) . I've had a few years experience with a start up before I pursued a venture of my own - but I was not really ready for what entrepreneurship had in store . Iken is great in codifying commonsensical steps and enabling continual learning. There is no place I know otherwise where a group of amazing, selfless people enable your business achieve its truest potential .
Joining iKen I realized none of my 13yrs of corporate experience could help me become an entrepreneur! Infact I struggled through out the bootcamp learning the skills to become an entrepreneur and eventually launch my start-up successfully.

Thank you iKen!
Coming from frosty corporate world, every session of iKEN revitalises with means to overcome imaginary & real blocks that I had in becoming entrepreneur (discovered that good number of them were actually imaginary). Process of learning by practice individually and from others, is not just an eye opener but also drives to look at means to overcome the next block. Having started the journey within my means one-step-at-a-time, now it’s part of life!
