Startup Business Boot Camp for Women

Startup Business Boot Camps for Women

If you're a woman who has dreamed of starting your own business, these Entrepreneurship Centers-created workshops are for you!

The Des Moines-based Startup Boot Camp consists of two Friday evening sessions and two all-day Saturday sessions. Participants learn from area experts and entrepreneurs, with presentations, group discussion, and hands-on support. Classes are small and presenters focus on providing students with the tools needed to start their own business.

The Rural Entrepreneurship Boot Camps are specifically designed to focus on the local community and surrounding areas. We will meet for two Saturday sessions as well as online. Participants learn from area experts and entrepreneurs, with presentations, group discussion, and hands-on support. Classes are small and presenters focus on providing students with the tools needed to help run their business.

 

The Drake University Entrepreneurship Centers Boot Camps for Women are supported by John Pappajohn through the Pappajohn Center for Entrepreneurship Outreach.

 

In January 2016, we held our first Rural Entrepreneurship Boot Camp for Women in Manning, Iowa and it was a smashing success! Read about the Boot Camp and our participants here, here, and here

We're working on another Rural Entrepreneurship Boot Camp for Women and Minorities in Perry, Iowa, later in the spring or early summer 2016. We'll post details on that event as they become available.

And, our next Startup Business Boot Camp at Drake University will be in Des Moines in May or June 2016!
