This spring, Babson College will deliver a version of its flagship Entrepreneur’s Boot Camp program in Miami, Florida. The Entrepreneur’s Boot Camp: Short Course (Miami) will run from March 19-21, 2015. This open enrollment program prepares high-potential entrepreneurs to grow and accelerate new ventures.

Through an intensive three-day experience, participating entrepreneurs will tackle important business issues as they move through the assessment, feasibility, and execution stages of new venture creation and growth. They will master the tools and strategies needed to evaluate the marketplace, identify and create opportunities, and advance their ventures.

The Entrepreneur’s Boot Camp will be taught by Babson’s Andrew Corbett and Angelo Santinelli, two distinguished academics with significant entrepreneurship, startup, and venture capital experience.

“We are thrilled to bring Babson’s flagship Entrepreneur’s Boot Camp to Miami, a city that is increasingly becoming a hotbed for entrepreneurial activity," said Santinelli. “This program is designed to provide a significant and lasting impact for entrepreneurs and their ventures. Through Babson’s Entrepreneurial Thought and Action​​®​ methodology, we are delivering a developmental opportunity that challenges participants to take action during the program and then immediately apply the learning upon completion of the experience."
