Participants will work on vetted business opportunities during this nine-day Camp. On the final night of the camp, at the Camp Closing Banquet, these young entrepreneur teams will pitch their business ideas to a panel of judges and potential investors. Throughout the Camp, participants can 'Entre-Bucks' to be spent during the concluding event, the wildly fun, 'Entre-Bucks Auction.'
Seriously, this camp is an incredible investment for only $149...that includes comprehensive instruction, learning experiences, team-building activities, breakfasts and lunches, books, and much, much more!
