BizSmart Alumni Accelerator: 10 Day for 13-17 Year Olds

On campus housing available for some sessions.
At the BizSmart Alumni Accelerator, self-motivated and directed “idea makers and world shakers” age 13-17 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.

BizSmart Atelier Masterclass (BAM): 6 Day for 16-19 Year Olds

On campus housing available.
At Camp BizSmart and BizSmart Global teaching the next generation of idea makers and world shakers is the very important process of learning product design and business skills by practice and prototype. It is how the best craftsmen learn their trade. So in honor of that tradition, we are introducing a new concept called the “atelier” to describe the Entrepreneurship Masterclass. It will be offered to a very small and highly selective group of future business leaders from around the world who will have the chance to be mentored by Silicon Valley Industrial Designers in an actual video production studio.
