LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 22, 2019) — The Von Allmen Center for Entrepreneurship, part of University of Kentucky’s Gatton College of Business and Economics, announced that applications are now being accepted for the Fall 2019 Entrepreneurs Bootcamp.

Details about the program are provided on the application form.

All projects and project leaders will be vetted and interviewed for acceptance into the Fall 2019 cohort.

It is important to note the fall program is not offered for academic credit and is open to the general public. The program is completely free, but requires time and dedication into forming a startup company. The sessions are always held on UK's campus and are typically located in the Gatton College Building. Recommended parking to attend these free sessions can be found in the paid garage, Parking Structure 5.

The official start date of the Fall 2019 Bootcamp will be announced before Aug. 1, 2019, along with a full list of projects accepted into the program.

The University of Kentucky is increasingly the first choice for students, faculty and staff to pursue their passions and their professional goals. In the last two years, Forbes has named UK among the best employers for diversity and INSIGHT into Diversity recognized us as a Diversity Champion two years running. UK is ranked among the top 30 campuses in the nation for LGBTQ* inclusion and safety. The Chronicle of Higher Education judged us a “Great College to Work for,”  and UK is among only 22 universities in the country on Forbes' list of "America's Best Employers."  We are ranked among the top 10 percent of public institutions for research expenditures — a tangible symbol of our breadth and depth as a university focused on discovery that changes lives and communities. And our patients know and appreciate the fact that UK HealthCare has been named the state’s top hospital for three straight years. Accolades and honors are great. But they are more important for what they represent: the idea that creating a community of belonging and commitment to excellence is how we honor our mission to be not simply the University of Kentucky, but the University for Kentucky.
