Extrapreneurship: How To Think Like An Entrepreneur

CFTE is proud to announce the launch of a new extrapreneurship programme to lead Finance 2.0. The programme, initialised as ‘CFTEx’, is an extrapreneurial framework that allows professionals to experience the decisions, constraints, and pressure faced by entrepreneurs. With its intense 8-week part-time experiential learning methodology, participants have no requirement to leave their job while developing their entrepreneurial mindset & applying their knowledge within high growth start-ups.

A new programme, it represents CFTE’s continuous efforts to achieve its objective of supporting digital transformation of financial services via education, and allows participants to apply knowledge in real-life use cases. Hundreds of existing CFTE alumni have thus far registered interest in the next intake for the programme, in addition to leading Tier 1 financial institutions & world-class universities.

“The entrepreneur mindset is at the core of the largest organisations in  the world today, from Apple, Alibaba, Ping An and Google. It is a prerequisite and essential quality for organisations and individuals who want to thrive in today’s world of business. We developed an Extrapreneurship methodology that represents a no-compromise solution for financial professionals & their institutions to develop the necessary mindset whilst keeping their existing roles.”
