The first of its kind in South Australia, Boss Camp is a startup program designed just for students in years 10 – 12.
Boss Camp aims to connect young people with passionate entrepreneurs to learn how to turn their ideas into a business.
“Alternative career paths, such as entrepreneurship, are just not catered for in the current school system. I’ve seen lots of students fall through the gaps because traditional study isn’t for them – this program gives them an alternative”, says founder Sasha Dragovelic.
Boss Camp recognises that traditional pathways to employment, such as University or Tafe, don’t always suit everyone. It aims to inspire, challenge and foster the entrepreneurial spirit amongst these young South Australians to ensure their future is secure and give them the chance to help contribute to driving growth in South Australia.
Boss Camp will be run during the school holidays on the 8 and 9th of October 2014. The program will bring young people, teachers and passionate entrepreneurs together for two days of intensive mentoring and hands-on experience. Tickets are now available through the program’s website.
