PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- The Pace University Entrepreneurship Lab will host a seven-week Veterans Entrepreneurship Boot Camp from Thursday, Oct. 9, through Thursday, Nov. 24.
The boot camp is a hands-on technology focused program providing participants with valuable skills that can be applied immediately. Small groups will meet in the state of the art Entrepreneurship Lab in downtown Manhattan. Instruction and guidance will be provided by professionals with real world experience.
The seven-week program includes business and technical instruction, as well as collaborative lab time and networking opportunities. The Entrepreneurship Boot Camp at Pace University is designed around two central elements: a focused, practical training in the tools and skills of new venture creation and growth; and the technical application that will allow participants the opportunity to launch a start-up. The activities of the Boot Camp will be structured to help veterans connect their military experience to business concepts. The role of the Entrepreneurship instructor will be to arm the participants with the ability to identify and analyze opportunity, conduct research, and create detailed plans to cover three important aspects of business which are operations, marketing and financial.
The program will provide academic and lab-based instruction on the most important web development tools and languages. The goal of the program is to train the participants to be able to independently create or oversee the creation and maintenance of a website.
The veterans will also be given an opportunity to network and collaborate throughout the course. A networking event will be held at the beginning of the courses to allow the participants the chance to connect about their business ideas and make connections. At the end of the courses, a Demonstration Day will be held to allow the participants to present their business concepts to industry experts, investors and venture capitalists.
