Since February, a group of Savannah-area entrepreneurs have learning about what it takes to not only create a startup, but to how to do it successfully. The group has been learning all things startup in a bootcamp taught by Yvonne Jouffrault, ATDC’s Entrepreneur-in-Residence in Savannah.
The ATDC @Savannah Startup Boot Camp is available to Savannah-area founders of technology- and product-based startups. The program is based on the lean startup model and is designed to lead entrepreneurs through the concept to launch of their product. The interactive program will help entrepreneurs identify and vet their target customers, articulate their value proposition, make financial projections, and prepare them for seeking investment. Participants will also have access to ATDC mentors during the class, which will provide both guidance and connections to resources.
The courses are designed to be a combination of classroom-style training and workshops to educate and move you forward on your journey. The 12 workshops encompass ATDC’s Entrepreneurs’ Education Series, which prepares entrepreneurs for ascent and learn best practices through interactive classes and workshops. An experienced entrepreneur and ATDC mentor will teach each workshop. The Savannah workshops will be taught by mentors from Savannah and Atlanta. All workshops will be held at Miskatonic Labs on the Guild Hall campus.
Applications are now open for the Fall Boot Camp class which is scheduled for September 2016 – November 2016. See upcoming schedule and application for the fall 2016 bootcamp.
Savannah’s WSAV News 3 reported on the bootcamp. The Savannah Morning News also recently profiled the bootcamp.
