UGPCD – Under graduate program for CEO development
We at the CEO Academy have customised several programs to meet your aspirations. Therefore, the UGPCD, which is of 12 months duration, has been designed to cater to those who want to set up their own business enterprises. Since a business venture entails certain risks, our program helps you identify the relevant risks and minimise them. It does not matter whether you are a fresher or an experienced professional. This program will equip you to perform as a seasoned CEO.
Why: What makes some start-ups abject failures and others a resounding success? According to the current global trends, 95% of such ventures fold up within the first three years of their establishment. Obviously, there are factors that play a decisive role in the success or failure of a start-up. Could the nature and quantum of funding be such a factor? We decided to look into this phenomenon. After two years of research, which also involved interaction with 150 founders of various start-ups, we discovered quite a few interesting specifics.
In 15% of the cases, funding was definitely an issue. However, the most striking fact we came across was the entrepreneur’s inability to become familiar with the ecosystem in which a start-up must perform. Founder-entrepreneurs have a vague idea of market dynamics, although they have some really good business ideas. These entrepreneurs do not realise that one needs to be equipped with relevant knowledge and skills in order to translate their ideas into a real and vibrant business entity.
There is neither a formal training program nor recourse to professional assistance for an entrepreneur, in case his or her start-up confronts problems. These problems could be in the field of finance, sales, man management, production or distribution.
Let us take a look at a problem often faced by various start-ups. The founder-entrepreneur has invested sufficient funds in a start-up. However, the sales are not picking up. Where could the problem be? In the product quality, in the sales strategy or the advertising focus? Perhaps, the personnel are not trained properly?
How to identify the real problem? This is where the entrepreneur needs to have sufficient knowledge and skills to understand and resolve the problems his or her start-up is facing.
This is where the programs designed by the CEO Academy play a vital role.

The Program’s USP: We have discovered that most of the Founder-entrepreneurs are highly enthusiastic about their start-ups but are inadequately skilled for the purpose. They have to depend upon others for making their dreams come true – which could be both costly as well as risky. This program is designed to rectify this situation. The CEO/Founder-entrepreneur will have the right knowledge and skills to get the work done from their subordinates/employees. In case they are going to run a business on their own, they will be able to perform quite efficiently.
