BizSmart Alumni Accelerator: 10 Day for 12-16 Year Olds

On campus housing available for some sessions.
At the BizSmart Alumni Accelerator, self-motivated and directed “idea makers and world shakers” age 12 – 16 will test their entrepreneurial ability and start up knowledge in real world, “pop-up” simulations to bring their product to life and push their dreams into reality. Scrappy young entrepreneurs will learn how to go from garage to global in this one-of-a-kind, life changing 10 day entrepreneurship experience.

Instead of curriculum presentations, the participants will choose from a list of short tutorials as needed. Teams will be able to schedule “on demand” coaching and mentoring sessions, with a budget to competitively bargain and bid for access to real accelerator resources. This unique, first-of-its-kind opportunity for young budding entrepreneurs, will conclude with a real world “showcase” event at Microsoft Silicon Valley, where the teams will feature their products in an exciting and competitive trade show and work the crowd for the highest investment from the attendees.
