As in a full-length NFTE program, BizCamp students come up with a business idea and then work to complete a business plan. At the end of the camp, students present their plans to a panel of judges for a chance to win seed capital.
BizCamps take place during the summer or during school breaks. They are offered free of charge to all participants who meet household income requirements.
Camp activities include:
BizCamp participants receive a number of resources including a textbook and workbook, wholesale trip grants, and the chance to win awards and prize money. Please download our BizCamp fact sheet for more information and an agenda of activities that take place during BizCamp.
