Gain Valuable Skills: At Camp BizSmart, students gain real-world skills while they experiment with the latest business methods and design tools and get personal experience working with company founders and CEOs. At the beginning of each camp, students form dedicated teams to work together solving actual business problems. As they work on products from innovative companies, they learn entrepreneurship skills, product design, and business plan essentials.
It doesn’t end there. Students learn how to make a preliminary design sketch, do marketing analysis, assess the strengths and weaknesses of the competition, compile a simple financial spreadsheet, and make collaborative decisions. The entire curriculum is designed to foster leadership, public speaking, design thinking, and collaborative teamwork. It’s intensive learning, but appropriate for students who are imaginative and full of big ideas.
Learn from Proven Leaders: At Camp BizSmart, students interact with real venture investors, business leaders, and entrepreneurs, about the latest technology trends that will change the world. Students also present their product innovation solution in person to angel investors and executives from top companies in a pitch competition.
Graduate Ready for Success with a Portfolio: Students graduate with a product design and business pitch presentation portfolio; professional, full-color product renderings; and the tools to excel at starting their own business. And they also leave more prepared, in the words of the late Steve Jobs, to “put a ding in the universe.”
