” IT Zone plans ‘boot camp’
Local entrepreneurs looking to jump-start their businesses can apply for the next Entrepreneur Boot Camp, a program sponsored by the Ann Arbor IT Zone, the University of Michigan Technology Transfer and the Michigan Economic Development Corp.
The three-day session on Oct. 14-16 is intended to give intensive training in business development for new companies, and includes interactive lectures and one-on-one session with veterans in the business, academic and investment communities. Participants will develop an executive summary for their businesses, an “elevator pitch” that presents their idea quickly and a more formal investor presentation.
The program, which is limited to 10 teams, costs $995 or $795 for Ann Arbor IT Zone members. For details, send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline to apply is Sept. 16. “ (AANews business In Brief)
