Interested in exploring a business idea you have? Or have an existing business in the early stages? Want a chance to win cash prizes of $5,000 to kickstart that business? Then we have a program for you.
Basecamp is an opportunity that is organized by Ryerson University's DMZ, a world-leading startup and talent tech incubator.
From business model canvas, prototyping, growth hacking, legal 101, to product development, innovation tours of offices such as Facebook HQ & Google, and new this year, a 2 day mini Artificial Intelligence 101 & coding program, our intensive 35 workshop bootcamp program teaches entrepreneurs everything they need to know to accelerate their business idea. High school students and university ones can simply apply with only a business idea or an existing business in the early stages, and can register up to 3 additional team members! The only requirement is that students must submit an idea that is tech related!
This is a completely free program to enrol in. Students spend 5-6 weeks over the summer learning to develop, market and accelerate their business ideas at Ryerson University's Student Learning Centre in the downtown core. Our program also offers participants to be paired with both a pitch coach, to help with confidence and public speaking, and a business mentor. But the best part?
After 5 weeks, students compete in a Demo Day where they pitch their business for an opportunity to win one of three $5,000 cheques towards kickstarting their idea!
Applications are now open and close on May 12th at 11:59pm.
