The Reload Greece RG Bootcamp17 pre-accelerator programme is an intensive seven days of inspiring workshops, presentations & mentoring by top international professionals. RG Bootcamp17 brings together visionaries (idea holders) with enablers (young talented people who want to contribute towards the ideas of others) to advance ideas into start-ups by creating international teams and fostering cross-country collaborations.
From 2nd to 8th October 2017, RG Bootcamp17 runs in Athens, Greece in partnership with the ALBA Graduate Business School. The unique programme connects young entrepreneurial talent in Greece with young talent from abroad. Teams of young entrepreneurs will be fast-tracked through the initial stages of developing their products and finding product-market fit. Young entrepreneurs will receive intense mentoring support from academics and leading business people.
Participants will join a startup team and learn how to develop early stage ideas, define their value proposition, develop a viable business plan, launch a startup and present their pitch. The programme includes practical and interactive workshops supported by international high profile mentors and inspiring presentations from successful entrepreneurs.
Reload Greece mentors have impressive experience in leading academic institutions and global corporations in top FTSE 100 companies from countries such as the UK, Japan, Germany, Switzerland and Hungary. On the final day, teams present to a panel of judges in order to win prizes, which will enhance their education and cross-country relationships. Prizes include two 50% scholarships at the ALBA Graduate Business School at the American College of Greece.
As with last year’s Bootcamp programme, Reload Greece are connecting with Greek based charities to provide scholarships to vulnerable young people in Greece. Young people from Greek charity Desmos for the Youth’ will be joining the programme with a scholarship; Desmos is a non-profit foundation created by a team of young, dynamic people who are addressing the humanitarian crisis afflicting Greece.
