Our 4th Year Of Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed

Be The Entrepreneur Bootcamp™ was made up of a diverse group of enthusiastic from varying fields, backgrounds, experience levels, and age groups. Over the course of the five-day intensive experience, campers took their businesses of every stage closer to their goals as entrepreneurs.

Through long days of speaking sessions, individualized mentoring, and two one-of-a-kind public events, these entrepreneurs worked to continually improve their business plans and work toward their success.

Companies ranged from innovative technological solutions to culinary services and non-profit organizations. While BTE Bootcamp is meant to encourage attendees and set them up for success, that it not to say that it will be a cake walk. Ben Stone of Phoenix Conservancy said that

“It felt (at times) like my ideas were broken down to their essence daily. While vaguely discouraging at first, the mentors & presenters were amazing in their ability to build them back up stronger than they were before.”

The whole Be The Entrepreneur Bootcamp team was thrilled to have the opportunities to work with the entrepreneurs above and many more throughout this intense five-day workshop. To see campers walk out with a refined vision of their businesses and goals for their future is the reason why we do what we do.

“BTE Bootcamp taught me to reimagine myself as a start-up business person which was a major change for someone who had come out of academia. I now have a whole new vision of myself and my future.” Said Gail Miller, owner of Wordsmith.
