Get your entrepreneurial ideas in shape at the UMD Technology Startup Boot Camp!
This year we're getting our hands and feet dirty. No lectures. No slides. No speakers. No panels. Instead, our focus is on working with you to advance your entrepreneurial ideas, through guided and group planning, team-building, conceptual progress and well-defined goals.
REAL BRAINSTORMING AND PROGRESSION
Surround yourself with some of the smartest, most enthusiastic people this region has to offer and work together to progress your idea in a compressed, fun, high-energy format.
IMMEDIATE ADVICE FROM EXPERTS AND PEERS
Experienced and successful entrepreneurs, investors, intellectual property attorneys and expert business advisors will be on-hand for the entire day to mentor and coach you.
FIND TEAMMATES (NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED)
Attendees' skills will be matched with teams throughout the day. No previous or technical expertise is required. Great teams need skillsets of all varieties!
The workshop will be bookended by investor pitches. The best pitches at the end of the Boot Camp will receive cash prizes.
The Boot Camp is a guided, hands-on workshop designed to help you advance your entrepreneurial ideas. You should leave the event prepared to take well-defined the next steps that can lead you towards success.
The Boot Camp is FREE to University of Maryland students, faculty and staff. The cost is $49 for all others. Lunch is included.
