INSEAD Startup Bootcamp


The Startup Bootcamp is an intensive and interactive weekend of training designed to test one’s entrepreneurial appetite and jumpstart the entrepreneurial adventure. Participants learn the building blocks of what it takes to create their own venture from the ground-up, including idea generation, team formation, business validation, pitching to investors and more. Set early in the INSEAD experience, the Startup Bootcamp is an invaluable first step in a student’s entrepreneurial journey at INSEAD.

Registration for the Startup Bootcamp for GEMBA - Europe Campus is now open. Registration for the next MBA Startup Bootcamp will be announced in August 2020.
