SEI Offers Bootcamp for Entrepreneurs


2020 Bootcamp for Entrepreneurs participants

June 9, 2021

BATON ROUGE – The LSU Stephenson Entrepreneurship Institute (SEI) will hold the 2021 Bootcamp for Entrepreneurs on Saturdays from July 24 – August 28, 2021, at the Southern University Law Center. This joint initiative of SEI and the City of Baton Rouge consists of a six-week training program and follow-up consulting projects open to all adult entrepreneurs—visionaries with ideas, early-stage ventures, and growing businesses.

The Bootcamp for Entrepreneurs occurs six consecutive Saturday mornings in the summer. The program offers intense, hands-on exposure to the fundamentals of launching and growing a successful venture taught by LSU E. J. Ourso College of Business faculty, subject matter experts, and thriving local entrepreneurs. Topics range from developing a viable business concept and understanding target markets to designing a profit model, setting up operations properly, marketing your venture, and understanding fundamental financial analysis.

Bootcamp participants will receive a binder with all training materials, hands-on workshops, the opportunity to hear from and network with successful business owners, and access to the LSU Stephenson Entrepreneurship Institute faculty. Participation in the program is $300, and scholarships are available.  

The Bootcamp for Entrepreneurs is made possible by several partnerships, including the City of Baton Rouge, Project 70805, Southern University Law Center, Baton Rouge Area Chamber, NexusLA, the U.S. Small Business Administration, Louisiana Economic Development, and Louisiana Small Business Development Center.
