Schedule of Instruction

 

Our first Boot Camp ran July 12th  - August 16th. The program is free. Most courses were taught on weekday and Saturday afternoons, but there were also six full-day sessions during the five weeks.

In an effort to accommodate participants’ schedules, 2 to 4 individuals collaborating on an existing or planned business venture may apply for a single spot as a team. Team applications should include the CVs/Resumes of all individuals on the team, one “team” cover letter, and one executive business summary of a draft business plan. It is expected that teams will decide which members will attend which specific instruction/mentoring sessions.
