Boot Camp

Project ECHO’s High School Entrepreneur’s Business Boot Camps


Project ECHO’s High School Entrepreneur’s Business Boot Camps launch the year-long program in the Fall. Held at UCLA’s Korn Hall, ECHO recruits industry leaders to offer relevant trainings to help our teens get started on their entrepreneurial quests.  Throughout the morning-long events, MBA candidates from UCLA provide mentorship to the teens as they break out into small groups to complete preliminary exercises.

The 2015 Boot Camp Series has been completed and no additional Boot Camps will be offered this program year. The next Boot Camp Series will be offered in the fall of 2016.  Boot Camp is part of a year-long program in entrepreneurship and students who are currently enrolled in Project ECHO through their high school are eligible to attend. Project ECHO currently does not have a program for individual students to participate, though they are welcome to watch the videos from our most recent events.
