BizSmart Global, the leading entrepreneurship experience company for aspiring entrepreneurs is launching a unique two-week workshop at “Best in the West”, Santa Clara University in the heart of Silicon Valley. Bring your own idea or select an amazing and epic team full of elite aspiring entrepreneurs. Compete for start-up money and create an eye popping and explosive Crowdfunding video to launch your team’s cool new invention like an Elon Musk rocket!

At the BizSmart Launchpad you will learn inside trade secrets as Silicon Valley start-up veterans share with you the skills and experiences that have led to global success. Learn how to market, finance, and prototype with designathon sessions led by experienced inventors and business leaders. Tour a Silicon Valley company and hear from a “Hardware Hero” CEO how they forged success out of failure.


What to Expect

You and your squad will have 10 days to become a powerful team and create an out-of-the-box product to wow investors in a pitch battle to show judges why your team should be voted the winning squad. Create a team and jaw dropping product that would make all stare in wonder. Competition is high and students come ready to bring their all in this entrepreneurship workshop.

Top high school entrepreneurs from all over the world will learn and practice the latest business and entrepreneurial skills with experts at companies like Apple, Google, Oracle and Pandora. Be the first young aspiring entrepreneurs ever to use patented artificial intelligence technology called “Clone Coaching” to give you confidential real time feedback on SKA’s (skill, knowledge and abilities) like grit, growth mindset, charisma, proactivity and optimism. Clone coaching will give you a dashboard & reports based on your skill that you can show off to future employers and colleges.
