About the experience

Does your team need to practice “intelligent failure”?

During the experience, you will learn how mountaineers prepare by learning from each other through live stories shared by Ms. Levine. You will use a format developed by Stanford University and Teamraderie. Your team will learn the concept of “adequate preparation” and apply it to how you get ready for new investments.
