The Business camp is Sponsored by;
• Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE)
• The Duke University Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP)
• The Fuqua School of Business at Duke University
Students in the Next Generation Venture Fund program attended a week-long BizCamp as part of their NGVF experience. In the BizCamp, NGVF students take part in an intensive NFTE entrepreneurship experience with NFTE’s master trainers as teachers, learning all of the key aspects of business planning and completing business plans based on their own original ideas in groups of five.
Ninety students in this year’s BizCamp were divided into four classrooms. Each classroom divided into groups of 4-5 students. The classrooms held four simultaneous business plan competitions: one in each classroom – where the groups will present their completed business plans in their groups before a panel of distinguished judges.
