Developed with world-class entrepreneurs and educators, the FDS experience is unique, transformative and an amazing way to develop leadership and critical thinking skills. Students are mentored throughout the process, and are exposed to thought leaders through our global network of entrepreneurs. Throughout the program they develop stronger confidence in themselves as creative entrepreneurs.
