Future Indiana entrepreneurs to attend statewide camp

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - More than 60 Purdue students who want to be the next wave of successful Indiana entrepreneurs will board a bus on March 22 that will take them to the first Indiana Collegiate Entrepreneur Bootcamp in Indianapolis.

The trip is sponsored by Purdue's Certificate in Entrepreneurship and Innovation program, based at the Burton D. Morgan Center for Entrepreneurship. The one-day course is designed for college students and is sponsored by the Indiana Economic Development Corporation and TechPoint, a nonprofit group that promotes Indiana technology-based enterprise and economic development.

At the event, students will learn how to create and manage a high-growth venture and avoid the most common business planning mistakes. Students will have the opportunity to present a business idea and receive feedback from entrepreneurs and venture capitalists.
