AUGUSTA STARTUP BOOTCAMP
Startup Boot Camp is available to Augusta 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 10 workshops encompass ATDCâs Entrepreneursâ 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 Augusta workshops will be taught by mentors from Augusta and Atlanta.
Workshops are held one morning per week for 10 weeks. Workshops include a presentation by an ATDC mentor followed by a foundersâ circle where each participant will discuss an issue they are working on at that moment. At least two mentors will attend each workshop. Each workshop is scheduled to last two hours, but participants and mentors are welcome to stay longer and talk.
