Hacker Lab, supported by sponsors such as Sierra College Center for Applied Competitive Technologies (CACT), is offering an eight week boot camp for entrepreneurs called Startup Hustle. It you are ready to start something and change the future, you’ll benefit from the tools, training and teachings from successful founders. Attend weekly in-person sessions plus access online resources to learn proven techniques to identify your prospective customers, test your idea, formulate your business concept and prepare a presentation that could be used to get funding.
The public-private partnership between Hacker Lab and Sierra College to establish a community maker space is one of the first community college models in the USA. According to Willy Duncan, Superintendent/President, Sierra College Joint Community College District, the college worked with Hacker Lab to establish the Rocklin CA maker and co-working space near the campus in February 2015. “Sierra College students can join Hacker Lab for only $12.50 per month and they can participate in Startup Hustle for free,” said Duncan.
“Experiences like Startup Hustle, where our students can work alongside entrepreneurs, enable them to apply what they are learning in the classroom,” said Duncan. “The end result is that students can explore careers and the college environment inspires innovation. Our community college supports economic development by preparing students with an entrepreneurial mind-set to work at local businesses and offering support to those innovators who are starting new companies.”
This entrepreneurial training is open to anyone in the greater Sacramento CA region. Sierra College students can apply at no cost. Applications are due March 17, 2016.
