Rocket Weekend

Bootcamp in Entrepreneurship, March 25th and 26th 2017. Participate and you can be chosen to participate in IntEntSem Bootcamp, for a week in Germany.

Description of Bootcamp

Regardless of your career choice - working in a company, working as a freelancer or founding a startup - the business and entrepreneurial dimension of everything involving products and services is an inevitability.

This Bootcamp in Entrepreneurship aims to develop skills and tools in entrepreneurship for students who have never had contact or experiences in this area.

Over the course of a weekend, students will use the Customer Centric Business Design™ methodology as a framework and road map, learning - in practice - a set of tools to transform new product ideas into successful products and services in the marketplace.

The bootcamp is very practical and hands-on. Students will work in teams.

The applications are individual. Applications of teams are not allowed. It is not mandatory or necessary for students to have product, service or business ideas to enroll.

After the end, the Porto Design Factory team and the Bootcamp coordinator will select 3 participants to join the IntEntSem Bootcamp, which will take place from 14 to 19 May in Oldenburg, Germany.
Porto Design Factory will fully bear the costs of this participation.
