GRIT Programs

Entrepreneurial GRIT™

GRIT is arguably the single most important factor that differentiates successful from unsuccessful entrepreneurs. That’s why MIT’s Martin Center for Entrepreneurship now incorporates PEAK’s GRIT into how it screens and develops entrepreneurs through its newest program. Entrepreneurial GRIT is a high-energy, full-on experience. It challenges entrepreneurs to:

  • Assess their own G-R-I-T, Robustness, and personal GRIT gaps
  • Develop Smarter, “Gooder”, Stronger overall GRIT
  • Apply GRIT Gainers to their specific concepts, efforts, enterprises, and endeavors
  • Make substantial strides in their personal GRIT
  • Grow gritty teams and organizations
  • Use GRIT as a competitive advantage
  • Apply GRIT to all aspects of one’s life
  • Emerge as a truly gritty entrepreneur
