LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 21, 2018) The Von Allmen Center for Entrepreneurship (VACE), part of University of Kentucky’s Gatton College of Business and Economics, announced prescreening for this fall’s edition of Entrepreneurs Bootcamp is now underway.

Individuals can apply to lead a team (bring in an idea) or join Bootcamp as a team member (support an entrepreneur on their journey). Bootcamp is open to all students, staff, faculty, graduates, post docs and community members. There is no cost to participate in the program.

For more about the Bootcamp Program, and the expectations of the Von Allmen Center for Entrepreneurship, read the Bootcamp Handbook.

Space is limited for team leaders (i.e. project ideas) and applicants bringing in ideas will be interviewed for acceptance into the fall 2018 cohort. Team members are automatically accepted into the program and will be assigned to a team based on their skill sets.
