Foresight Technology Acceleration Program
The purpose of the Technology Acceleration Program is to offer a specific program designed to help SME Chief Technology Officers (CTOs) determine the optimal or critical path forward, to transform their ideas and concepts into real products that solve the customer validated problem, and ultimately help drive revenue in a shorter period of time. The ideal outcome of this program is that you and your team find the best way to fast track through the Technology Readiness Levels (TRL).
Program content will include, but not be limited to, the following training and support for the leadership team:
- Critically self-evaluate the TRL Level of their technologies
- Complete a detailed requirement specification for your MVP (approved by a prospective customer)
- Prepare an actionable strategy to fast-track technology development through the TRL levels from ideation to product readiness
- Implement operational processes for milestone and technology success tracking
- Support the leadership team to most effectively collaborate with technology feasibility partners
- Learn important business acumen to help you be the best CTO you can be
Though this is a short pilot program, you will also receive:
- Knowledge, tactics and processes to fast-track technology feasibility and product development
- Hands-on EiR support that focuses on combining business development with technology development
- Critical training on business model canvas, financials, budgeting, customer engagement and presentation skills
