Ladybrille entrepreneurs, we are encouraging you to apply for the 2015 MITx Global Entrepreneurship bootcamp. If you are an aspiring entrepreneur, you should also apply.
The MITx Global Entrepreneurship Bootcamp is a nexus connecting entrepreneurs from around the world to the entrepreneurial ecosystem surrounding the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
MIT will open its doors this summer to students to learn innovation-driven entrepreneurship in the spirit of mens et manus. Entrepreneurs participating in the MITx Global Entrepreneurship Bootcamp will start a company in one week and pitch their startup to a panel of investors, giving them a taste of “drinking from a firehose” that all MIT students experience.
MIT will also host the inaugural MITx Global Entrepreneurship Teachers Bootcamp for entrepreneurs and educators interested in teaching and mentoring the next generation of entrepreneurs. Teachers will participate in a three-day bootcamp before getting hands-on experience teaching and mentoring startup teams at the MITx Global Entrepreneurship Bootcamp.
Admission to the MITx Global Entrepreneurship Bootcamps are highly selective, based on five criteria:
- Entrepreneurial potential
- Focus on excellence
- Contribution to community
- Intellectual curiosity
- Collaborative spirit
- Admissions will be made on a rolling basis. Admissions and scholarships will be awarded based on merit. Do not let cost prevent you from applying!
The application deadline is midnight (00:00 EST) June 1, 2015! Visit bootcamp.mit.edu website for more information and to apply today!
