In this special weekend bootcamp, you will work with acclaimed serial entrepreneur Amol Sarva (and various visiting speakers) to better understand what it means to create your own business. During the 3.5 hour program, you will hear inside stories of how famous brands (Apple, Netflix, TikTok, or others) were created, and you will hear from inventors and creators about how they built products and companies. You will also have the chance to talk to an entrepreneur about their new business plan, and to give feedback.

"I wish I had this opportunity in high school! So much of what I knew about medicine was through chance encounters with doctors and sporadic shadowing opportunities. I wish I had access to a structured summer program like this as an intro to the field."
Every school has its own way of teaching and learning (aka “pedagogy”). Here's what you can expect from ours.
