The TalentUp Program trains aspiring entrepreneurs from Sardinia, Italy to launch and manage their own ventures. TalentUp Entrepreneurs undergo three phases: 

Phase One

TalentUp Entrepreneurs learn the basics of entrepreneurship in Sardinia, Italy from experts and seasoned professionals alike through classroom lessons and experiential learning exercises.

Phase Two

Each year, TalentUp Entrepreneurs continue their entrepreneurial education abroad by traveling to world-class business schools, innovation labs, and think tanks. In 2019, TalentUp selected the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University to host the program's abroad training program.

Phase Three

TalentUp Entrepreneurs travel back to Sardinia, Italy to launch their start-up.
