LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 28, 2017) The Entrepreneurs Bootcamp Program organized by the Von Allmen Center for Entrepreneurship, part of the University of Kentucky’s  Gatton College of Business and Economics is now pre-screening project ideas for the fall 2017.                                                                                                                              

Project idea applications are open to all UK faculty, staff, post-doctoral fellows, current students and community entrepreneurs.

The boot camp runs all semester, beginning with the opening session at 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 7, in the Gatton College, with several sessions being located off campus to mimic expectations of what it takes to be an entrepreneur. Sessions will continue 5-6:30 p.m. every Thursday following.

While the camp is of no cost and is not for academic credit, it offers hands-on experiences through its various sessions.

Applicants will be contacted via email to set up an initial screening of your project idea between June 30–July 14.
