What You’ll Learn

Camp BizSmart is pleased and excited to partner with the prestigious, 124 year old Baylor School in beautiful Chattanooga, Tennessee for a very unique Residential 10-day entrepreneurship experience full of fun and learning. Participants will focus on a team-based, hands-on innovation case product design and a business plan challenge specifically designed by the CEOs and founders of some of the hottest start-ups in Silicon Valley, Chattanooga and the Southeast. Students will defend their solutions to a panel of top entrepreneurs and business leaders. The best team out of all Camp BizSmart locations will be recognized at an annual angel capital expo sponsored by the Keiretsu Forum at Microsoft Silicon Valley.

Few things have shaped my worldview and influenced my decisions as much as Camp BizSmart has.
