Applications are now open for the 2017 Boot Camp class which is scheduled for February 2017 – March 2017
Startup Boot Camp is available to Savannah-area founders of technology and product based startups. The program is based on the lean startup model and is designed to lead entrepreneurs through the concept to launch of their product.
The interactive program will help entrepreneurs identify and vet their target customers, articulate their value proposition, make financial projections, and prepare them for seeking investment. Participants will also have access to Georgia Tech’s ATDC mentors during the class, which will provide both guidance and connections to resources. Check out the past participants to hear their stories.
The courses are designed to be a combination of classroom-style training and workshops to educate and move you forward on your journey. The 12 workshops encompass ATDC’s Entrepreneurs’ Education Series, which prepares entrepreneurs for ascent and learn best practices through interactive classes and workshops. An experienced entrepreneur and ATDC mentor will teach each workshop. The Savannah workshops will be taught by mentors from Savannah and Atlanta. At the end of the bootcamp, participants will pitch at a demo day attended by the public and showcase their company or ideas. The winner of the pitch event will receive $10,000 cash prize from SEDA.
