Creative Destruction Lab (CDL) is a nonprofit organization that delivers an objectives-based program for massively scalable, seed-stage, science- and technology-based companies.

The nine-month program employs an objectives-based mentoring process to enhance the performance of technical founders who learn from the insights of experienced entrepreneurs, with the goal of maximizing equity-value creation. The program combines 5 elements to help companies transition from science projects to scalable and financeable companies:

  • An emphasis on objective-setting, helping companies focus on what’s most important to their business
  • Focused mentorship from experienced entrepreneurs who have founded, led, and sold significant tech companies
  • Technical advice from world-leading scientists, engineers, and economists
  • Hands-on support from top business students, who embed within the company to provide business support
  • Opportunities to raise capital, including angels and VCs from Europe and North America
