This half day program, starting at Noon on Saturday, November 16th, will help you in a few ways. First, it will make you comfortable with the entire Startup Weekend experience as you’ll learn about what happens and tips from alums. On top of that, you’ll get to meet people who will be attending Startup Weekend beforehand, so you’ll have a few familiar faces around you during the weekend. Second, it helps you get the most out of Startup Weekend and the week leading up to it. During Bootcamp you’ll get to present and practice pitches, which increases your chances of your idea being picked. We’ll also teach you how to interview people to validate your idea.
Don’t take it from us- just listen to Jeri Alcock, PDXSW alum, who took her company through Portland Seed Fund! She says, “When I showed up at Bootcamp I didn’t even know what a pitch was. I was so nervous, I couldn’t get through my pitch at Bootcamp and I had to practice constantly for the Friday night pitch fire. The Bootcamp experience prepared me to be successful at PDXSW and everything I learned at PDXSW I use now — when pitching, talking to potential investors and business planning. It was truly the best investment I’ve made in getting my business off the ground.”
