November 9-13, 2020 in Lagos, Nigeria

The Cascador program is an intensive, in-depth examination of your interpersonal skills and business plans. The process begins prior to the on-site program and continues for six months afterward.

PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT

Personal development is the foundation of professional growth. Prior to the program, you will be asked to complete a questionnaire that generates a report about your personality type. You will have a personal, one hour video session prior to the program to interpret your report, and discuss how your personality type can work best with people of other styles. We will practice these interpersonal skills during interaction with the faculty and your peers.

YOUR PLAN TO SCALE YOUR BUSINESS.

You will be required to submit your business history and future plan prior to the program. Your history and plans will be discussed with faculty by video prior to the program, so that the faculty can identify what support and resources you need.
