Tuesday 1/21, 9am - Sat., 5pm , CIC - One Broadway, Cambridge
Sign up now! Camp starts March 5.
Designed for middle school and high school students from any school or town, participants work with a variety of entrepreneurs to start a venture, figure out how it impacts their local community, and determine how it will generate revenue while driving social change.
Regular classes will meet every Saturday from 9am to 12pm at CIC, from March 5th through May 2nd.
ALL students who complete the Bootcamp are recognized as Youth CITIES Scholars by the City of Boston or Cambridge for their entrepreneurial training, and have access to CITIES Skunkworks (physical space and mentoring office hours, among other perks to reach a Minimal Viable Product—such as access to coders and 3D printers). Youth CITIES Scholars also have access to additional funding through the venture simulation fund, and may also apply for exclusive internships within Skunkworks.
Our March-to-May Bootcamp is a 10-week Saturday program where students may work in teams or as individuals to start a venture. Students from a variety of backgrounds and interests learn how to harness their own skills and interests as a launch pad to create a value-driven, sustainable solution to a real-life market opportunity. Classes are taught by various experts in the local entrepreneurial ecosystem. Grants are awarded to top student ventures, and continued support (via Skunkworks) is provided for all who complete the Bootcamp.
The March-to-May Bootcamp is our flagship program, and has been commended by:
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts
The City of Boston
The City of Cambridge
