Pavlo Rudenko of TriboTEX, a technology-focused company that attended BTE Bootcamp last year, said of camp:

“The BTE Bootcamp was a very fast paced and enjoyable week. We appreciated the opportunity to learn with our colleagues about evaluating ideas and their potential to become a viable business opportunity, bootstrapping strategies for startups, market analysis, sales and negotiation, and the art of the pitch. It was enlightening to find out about the variety resources available for startups, right here, on the Palouse. The different speakers brought valuable hands on experience and helped our startup network with many talented professionals. We discussed many ideas on how to take startup to the next level particularly in the area or marketing and sales. Due to the mentorship of the BTE Bootcamp team, our team become more comfortable pitching to clients and closing deals.”

Campers will take businesses from every stage, from searching for an idea to an established business, and work to improve them through refining their business plans and pitches, learning how to build their team, marketing strategies, and so much more.

Trent Goetze, owner of Airway Hills Golf Course, attended BTE Bootcamp last summer as well. He has stated that BTE Bootcamp was instrumental to continuing the success of his business.

“By the end of BTE Bootcamp, we had received so much input and encouragement. We had new vision and passion for the business. We wanted to take what we had learned and apply it to our business as soon as possible! Since BTE Bootcamp, we have started looking at getting better signage and brochures out, specifically including flyers for events. We also have our social media platform up and running, and have started making contacts with companies about future events.”

It is without question that our campers will walk away from camp knowing much more than when they came in. We look forward to networking with these dedicated entrepreneurs, and helping them to achieve their business dreams.
