New York City

We are delighted to announce our third annual flagship leadership and disruptive innovation summer program that will be held July 24-28, 2017 in New York City. We are now accepting applications! To apply please email info@ivystrategyadvisor.com. Space is limited! Details below.

For the past two summers, we have conducted this program in New York City with the Disruptor Foundation and the Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Awards. The Disruptor Foundation was cofounded by Craig Hatkoff and Prof. Clay Christensen, Harvard Business School, originator of disruptive innovation theory. The Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Awards are presented in collaboration with the Tribeca Film Festival. This unique program targets students aged 12-19 years old, who are looking to discover themselves, develop their leadership skills, critical thinking, analytic skills and aiming to enhance themselves to become a strategic thinker in life. The program is highly dynamic with experiential, role-playing, team building and interactive exercises using the proprietary data-driven Innovative Leadership Program developed by Dr. Wasif Syed, a Disruptor Foundation Fellow. The program includes a range of modules on innovative leadership, strategic leadership, disruptive transformation, innovation, entrepreneurship (including our unique case study on Shark Tank), self-empowerment, self-discovery, global engagement, communication, civic engagement, organizational skills, analytical and critical skills to name a few. The program also includes several guest speakers. Some of our speakers in previous years have included:

Craig Hatkoff, cofounder of the Tribeca Film Festival and the Disruptor Foundation

HBO Documentary Film Screening “The Diplomat” featuring life of U.S. Ambassador Richard Holbrooke and discussion with Emmy award-winning producer, Stacey Reiss

U.S. Ambassador Michele Sison, U.S. Deputy Representative to the United Nations

This leadership program is unique. It provides an incentivized pathway to execution by giving students two follow-up tasks post-program:

1. Teach something new to someone in your community.

2. Work in a team and implement a social impact project in your community.

The top five students who complete these tasks successfully after the program are selected to attend the Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Awards. We aim to have a transformative impact and help students discover themselves by teaching them key tools to learn how to be innovative and build critical life skills.
