Get inspired! Entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to learn from industry experts, entrepreneurs, research scientists, academics, business mentors and coaches at the Palouse Knowledge Corridor’s Be the Entrepreneur Bootcamp™, May 21-25, 2017 in Moscow, Idaho, and Pullman, Washington, and on the campuses of Washington State University and the University of Idaho. The program is designed to maximize the take-away value to real entrepreneurs in our four tracks: value-added agriculture, animal and human health, technology and innovation and outdoor recreation. The four topics have been selected based on experts in the area and demand in the Inland Pacific Northwest.
Participants will learn when to protect their intellectual property, how to market their new revenue streams, and all about the risks, liabilities, and certification issues that will arise. Newly-minted entrepreneurs will leave with a plan of attack for their expansion into more productive, more profitable enterprises.
Our bootcamp instructors represent the best in research, science, technology and business in a two-university, agriculture-heavy region, and our BTE™ Campers will walk away from the five-day camp with a fully-developed business plan, covering the gamut from advancing a business model to how to pitch to investors.
