Day in the life at BTE Bootcamp™
Brandon Bledsoe of Safeguard Equipment and BTE Bootcamp™ alum said that
“BTE Bootcamp™ was a fantastic networking opportunity with like-minded people who are passionate about what they do, and that he would absolutely recommend the experience to other aspiring entrepreneurs. It’s been amazing. Everyone was encouraging with every step we took. We were referred to countless connections which we continue to network with today.”
A unique feature of BTE Bootcamp™ is the mixture of minds from all fields, including health care, marketing, technology, recreation, and more. Just ask Margaret Donelick, cofounder of BiMBY Power Company, BTE Bootcamp™ alum and one of the winners of the Palouse Challenge in 2016.
“It was really interesting to meet so many people offering such a wide range ideas of businesses, and all in different stages of development,” Margaret said. “Without a doubt, BTE Bootcamp™ met our goal of helping us craft our pitch deck, and it went beyond our expectations by introducing us to helpful people far and wide.”
Our sponsors care just as much about providing and partaking in the networking opportunities available throughout the course of BTE Bootcamp™.
“We, at Stoel Rives, spend a lot of our time and resources on fostering and developing entrepreneurs and the entrepreneurial spirit. Entrepreneurship is the backbone of our communities.” Said Brian Larsen of Stoel Rives LLP, returning sponsor and speaker at BTE Bootcamp™.
BTE Bootcamp™ exists to help aspiring and established entrepreneurs to achieve their business goals, and to equip them with the knowledge they need to succeed. Our campers are just as dedicated to learning from mentors, teachers, and sponsors as they are to potentially helping other campers. Kimberly and Garrett Hall, cofounders of ReSink, said that the connections they made with other campers were vital to their business.
“They don’t only benefit you, but you can also meet people and share information and benefits with them” she said. “Some of the companies we were there with have become incredibly successful, and we’re so proud of them — we feel like we’re part of their success if even a small thing we said helped them, and that in turn encourages us to be successful!” said Kimberly.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to mingle with some of the best and brightest on the Palouse at every stage of business development.
