Berkeley Method of Entrepreneurship Bootcamp

The upcoming Berkeley Method of Entrepreneurship (BMoE) bootcamp is scheduled for August 17 – 21, 2020

Because of Covid-19, this bootcamp session will be held virtually with online lectures and workshops. Mentoring sessions will also be held online with a number industry mentors available to work with the startup teams. (NOTE: The below content on this page is from the January 2020 BMOE Bootcamp and will be updated shortly.)

The Pantas and Ting Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology (SCET) hosts the bi-annual Berkeley Method of Entrepreneurship Bootcamp (BMoE), an intense 4 1/2 day venture workshop held at UC Berkeley.

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 SCET faculty and industry experts; and learn in a collaborative environment.
