Liftoff PGH Entrepreneurship Bootcamp

Starting June 9, Liftoff PGH is offering a 10-week interactive entrepreneurship bootcamp for all local universities. No matter their experience, students will conduct market research, develop their own business plans, and create a compelling pitch, all in preparation to apply for the live Ideathon pitch competition. Weekly live coaching sessions will take place twice a week using Google Classrooms (from 6:00-7:30pm), and students will test their latest skills with at home assignments.

The bootcamp is part of Liftoff’s larger Ideathon pitch competition, which challenges pre-professional, university, and recently graduated students to propose bold solutions in healthcare. Competition prizes total $100,000.

The 2020 Liftoff PGH Entrepreneurship Bootcamp applications are now closed.
