Startup Summer Boot Camp

About the Startup Summer Boot Camp

The Cal Poly Pomona Student Innovation Idea Lab (iLab) Startup Summer Boot Camp is an 8-week program for selected CPP startup teams. Each participating team is expected to: 1) create a MVP (minimum viable product) and 2) conduct 20-30 customer interviews. The purpose of the boot camp is the further development of the startup concept/venture. At the conclusion of the program, each team is expected to make a go/no go decision regarding its startup concept. Team members participate in sessions on topics such as Intellectual Property, customer discovery, Business Model Canvas, business formation, and venture financing. Each team is required to participate in the iLab mentoring program

The boot camp concludes with Demo Day, which provides a platform for the startup teams to showcase their ventures, pitch their startup concepts, and receive constructive feedback from a panel of experts.
