ASMSA's Entrepreneurship and Innovation Bootcamp is for all innovators, aspiring entrepreneurs, and outside-the-box thinkers! This immersive, hands-on, student-driven learning experience introduces participants to the "lean startup" process which is the basis of successful business launch programs like the National Science Foundation's i-Corps program. Students explore rapid product development and iteration, identify product/market fit, and business model development. The week culminates an exciting expo in which attendees prepare and deliver a public pitch of their ideas. Students gain valuable team-building, communication, and critical thinking skills in a supportive and challenging environment. Don't miss out on the fun.
