Salve Regina, Innovate Newport to launch Startup Boot Camp workshop
For those wanting to improve their odds of successfully launching, growing and funding a startup or small business venture — Salve Regina is offering a unique opportunity this summer through a Startup Boot Camp weekend workshop.
This Startup Boot Camp, hosted by Salve Regina’s Office of Graduate and Professional Studies in conjunction with Innovate Newport, is a two-and-a-half day workshop for entrepreneurs and those interested in starting a business.
“This boot camp is intended for a wide range of participants,” explained David Altounian, vice provost of the Office of Graduate and Professional Studies. “From those considering starting an entrepreneurial venture or new business to those that already have a venture but are looking to refine their business model or develop a business pitch deck to raise money.”
During the boot camp, attendees will learn about developing a business and raising money for their venture through a combination of lectures and work sessions. Attendees will also be provided access to the Founders Academy video series in preparation for the workshop.
Startup Boot Camp will be led by Gordon Daugherty, a best-selling author, seasoned business executive, entrepreneur, startup advisor and investor. Gordon is the co-founder and president of Austin’s Capital Factory.
“We’re so pleased to bring Gordon Daugherty — a recognized expert, educator, and mentor for founders and entrepreneurs — to Newport,” said Altounian.
Over the years, Gordon has given personal advice to several hundred entrepreneurs, and more than 4,000 startup founders have completed his Founders Academy boot camp. He has published more than 150 startup advice articles and is the producer of a video library with 50 streaming titles of educational content for startup founders.
