Startup Boot Camp…Start Up Your Spring ’20 Semester

Posted by Tim on January 10, 2020 in Community Announcements, Competitions, Event, Networking, Workshops

Start  Up Your Spring ’20 Semester:

You have a product or an idea that could ignite. What if you just start selling? When can you stop listening and just build? Surely your customers are just like you and they’ll buy the first time… but what if they don’t?

Learn to avoid the mistakes that stop so many founders short, and ask for help in a way that gets you the access you need. Validate your riskiest hidden assumptions!

Apply Now! Winter 2020 Boot Camp is January 23rd and 24th. Seats are limited – students accepted on a rolling basis. Click here to apply.

How Does it Work?

Join us for 2 full days before the fall or spring semester begins. We’ll provide food and any necessary off-campus transportation for program related activities. If you live on campus, early dorm check-in is available.

About the Tool Library:

Run by an all-volunteer staff, the Tool Library is a nonprofit organization based in Buffalo’s University Heights neighborhood. We maintain an inventory of thousands of tools, ranging from power drills to pressure washers, that our members can borrow for a small annual fee. We have also organized and engaged thousands of volunteers in educational workshops and service events that leverage our tools, such as tree plantings, neighborhood beautification and clean-ups, public art projects, and “repair cafes” where people bring in broken items to be fixed.
