Bootcamp is an intense two-day sprint that leverages the expertise and connections of large corporate partners, experienced coaches, and innovation pros to benefit startups and small businesses from across the state.

Entrepreneurs apply to be a part of this selective, action-oriented program that intentionally pairs founders with dedicated coaches. The world-class curriculum is narrowly applied to tackle the specific challenges of each business.

The Bootcamp structure quickly brings clarity and focus to businesses at any stage and helps founders work through the market validation process to identify the pain points of their customers and determine if people are willing to pay for the solution their business offers. Bootcamp connects founders with experts in our network to get advice on their most challenging obstacles. 

In their final assignment, founders learn how to craft the perfect pitch. They practice their pitch in front of our team and global innovation leaders before they deliver it in front of a live panel of expert judges.
