Why CFTE’s eXtrapreneurship Programme is your Best Bet to Build Entrepreneurial Skills

If you are looking to build the skills and competencies to think like an entrepreneur or are determined to change the way you work for the better, CFTE’s Extrapreneurship programme is the perfect course for you. For those unaware of the revolutionary concept of ‘Extrapreneurship’, it is an idea that combines the best of both worlds – that of an intrapreneur and an entrepreneur. The goal of an Extrapreneur is to deliver current services or products, or to boost a certain metric, be it productivity, efficiency or profitability for a particular organisation, without the company contracting it to full-time staff. Thus, being an extrapreneur lets one jump into the boots of an interim-entrepreneur who is driven to problem solve and innovate and help organisations meet their goal. These organisations have a relatively sound foundation which also drastically reduces the risk of failure as compared to a start-up. Being an extrapreneur allows burgeoning entrepreneurs to get their feet wet, or seasoned intrapreneurs to spread their wings and fly with a higher chance of long-term sustainability.

What is CFTE’s Extrapreneurship Programme?

The Extrapreneurship programme is structured as a 8-week curriculum where participants work remotely, on a part time basis to solve a real-world problem statement set by a high-growth company. This year participants have the chance to work on a problem statement set by the tech giant, Uber. 

The programme is an amalgamation of 4 sprints: Understand, Design, Execute and Deliver. This structure allows participants to apply agile product development practices as they focus on delivering the final project. The exciting part of the programme is the opportunity to work collaboratively to strategically solve the problem, in groups of 5 that will comprise of leading professionals around the globe. Throughout the programme participants will have the support of experts from CFTE and executives from Uber to help bolster their innovative and entrepreneurial thinking.
