Event Details

The 2013 Boston College Scramble™ (#BCScramble) unites emerging entrepreneurial talent across campuses with great coaches, skill-building sessions, and good eats. The Boston College Entrepreneurs Society (BCES) is hosting an epic weekend of big thinking, rapid prototyping, skill-building, teaming, and demo’ing at Boston College.


October 25-27th, 2012 -- The StartUp Scramble™ is a high-intensity, hands-on learning lab. You bring your ideas, skills, and A-game attitude starting Friday (10/25) at 6PM. We pack your weekend with pitching, teaming, skill-builing, and coaching then conclude with you pitching to a Shark Tank-style expert Final Panel.

Beyond prototyping new ventures, immerse yourself in rapid skill-building sessions covering business modeling, technology, and legal stuff specifically for student startups (as a student, can you legitimately operate a business from campus?).  We'll push boundaries in a supportive, community-focused environment, so there's definitely a ticket-type just for you. 

Past Scramble attendees and teams have:  

  • Applied to the country's top accelerators. 
  • Landed jobs and internships through new connections. 
  • Won local and national competitions. 
  • Applied field-tested experience to their roles as student leaders and young professionals. 

Each year, hundreds of student-led teams pilot and roadmap ideas from social enterprises, education and personal lifestyle apps, and model health and life sciences startups.

Stephen DouglassStephen Douglass is Founder & Managing Director of Scramble Systems. For over 10 years, he has led students through intense innovation and startup immersions with his hands-on, inspirational and fast-paced approach to building ideas that matter.

Stephen's background scrambles social activism and startup ventures. He has experience in technology M&A, capital raising, and distressed private equity. Stephen has consulted for a number of leading for- and non-profits. He continues to advise student ventures, partner with companies and organizations to develop strategic innovation initiatives, and run Scrambles.

In college, Stephen served as Captain of a nationally-ranked NCAA gymnastics team and hustled as a professional breakdancer. He still teaches Scramblers to get their B-Boy/B-Girl on. After living on the road for the better part of a year, he founded Scramble Systems to forge the next generation of entrepreneurial athletes in 2009.  Stephen attended Babson College where he received his MBA. Follow him at @UncivilEngineer.   


  • Bring your student ID. All attendees must be surrently enrolled in a degree-seeking college or university.
  • Students have inquired as to whether the Scramble is exclusively for tech startups. It's not. Attendees are encouraged to experiment with new ways to rapidly organize/prototype non-tech focused ventures too.  The ventures piloted in the past are as unique as attendees' interests, ranging from high-tech apps to urban farming initiatives and pole-dancing for survivors of domestic violence as an social empowerment tool.
