Calling all young entrepreneurs and big thinkers who aspire to join the next generation of “Idea Makers and World Shakers”

This unique, innovative one-of-a-kind 3-day entrepreneurship experience, was designed by BizSmart Global, Inc., with leading education institutions like Stanford University. International partners include the American School of Bombay, the Roosevelt American School in Lima, Peru, the Indian School of Business and the Hottingen School in Zurich. Aspiring entrepreneurs ages 11 to 17 who want to make the next great thing and “put a ding in the universe”, will work on business innovation cases from Silicon Valley companies like Netflix and Hydrobee.

Presented by Camp BizSmart, and featured on CNN and CNBC, the Silicon Valley Innovation, Product Design & Business Plan Academy, now in its tenth year, is a unique 3-day, real world, pre-college experience full of challenge, fun and learning. The Camp BizSmart, Learn by Doing Model was developed by executives at Fortune 500 companies like General Electric and Texas Instruments. The unique, “Learn-Do-Check-Act” curriculum links real world business projects and topic specific “mini-cases” to attaining valuable skills, insights and inspirations that will fuel a lifetime of achievement and success. Innovation case business teams will defend their product innovations to a panel of top executives and angel investors.

The student selected by the staff as the “ZOG Award” winner will be offered a full tuition (not including travel, room and board) to the BizSmart Alumni Accelerator at Santa Clara University.
