2018 Berkeley Method of Entrepreneurship Bootcamp

The Berkeley Method of Entrepreneurship (BMoE) bootcamp
August 13th-17th, 2018

The Pantas and Ting Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology hosts the bi-annual Berkeley Method of Entrepreneurship Bootcamp (BMoE), a week venture workshop. The next boot-camp will be an intense 4-1/2 days to be held August 13-17, 2018, at UC Berkeley’s Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship.

The bootcamp facilitates immersive learning for new venture creation. This workshop offers a one-of-a-kind experience in one of the premier institutions in Silicon Valley. During the program, participants will attend sessions that weave together lectures and interactive game-based exercises, receive one-on-one mentoring from Sutardja Center faculty and industry experts; and learn in a collaborative environment. Participants will also join one of two tracks (based on whether you are an entrepreneur or from an academic or research) to work on a project or plan of your own. Track 1 will focus on developing a new venture/project (for students and entrepreneurs), Track 2 will focus on how to transform into a start-up business  (for academia and researchers).

Work on idea generation and how to turn ideas into new ventures and taking it to market while integrating concepts including customer-focused design thinking and innovation in business models, and receiving input and advice from real-life entrepreneurs, investors, and marketing specialists
