The BSEEN Bootcamp

Everything you need to know about our startup training bootcamps

We like to start with a bang – you’ll start your 12 month experience on the BSEEN programme by participating in one of our intensive startup bootcamps.

We want you to start your entrepreneurial journey with a solid foundation of knowledge, so you can take your first steps with confidence. So, we’ve recruited a team of expert trainers, who’ll deliver a series of interactive workshops on key topics, including digital marketing, sales and pitching, finance, business planning and getting into a founders mindset.

Our trainers have a huge amount of experience and wisdom to share with you, and are at your disposal to answer any burning questions.

The bootcamp usually takes place over 5 full days at one of our partner universities.

We also welcome alumni back to the bootcamp to share their experiences with you – the perfect opportunity to quiz an entrepreneur a little further ahead than you on the challenges they’ve faced and the lessons they’ve learned.

At previous bootcamps, we’ve also held sessions on Mentoring, Legals and Intellectual Property and How to develop your visual identity.
