the format

Our bootcamp pairs you with 2-3 other entrepreneurs or companies. This collaborative format is the magic that makes startup unlike anything else out there. The diversity of industry, life experience and business knowledge in the room not only leads to great conversations, but provides the valuable outside perspective your business needs.

Startup bootcamp includes 16 hours of facilitated, collaborative time at Workup, our coworking space that is designed to inspire. There will also be homework between sessions, meals provided and all of the coffee you can drink!
