Application Overview

Deadline to submit an entry is June 25, 2018.

BizWorld’s Youth Venture Project is for young people, ages 14-18 who have a business idea (product or service) they would like to further develop and pursue in a 5-day Bootcamp from 9am-4pm the week of July 9-13, 2018.

Camp applicants should be prepared to tell us more about their business idea. They should answer each question to the best of their ability, and it is okay if they do not have complete answers to all questions.
