Launchpad Center for Accelerating Success
Startup Summer School at UCSD ($1,150)
We'll collaborate with Calit2/QI, the San Diego Supercomputer Center, and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography to inspire students’ business ideas with cool multidisciplinary work such as drones, cyber archaeology, robots, STEM, DNA simulations, big data, bioluminescense, etc. The last day culminates with student pitches to CEOs, educators, and entrepreneurs
Students will also play an online entrepreneur simulation, in which they are divided into teams to evaluate financing options at startup, and make staffing, marketing, and inventory management decisions for twelve simulated quarters; each team competes against the other teams in class, growing sales and managing operations to maximize profits.
