The Investment Readiness Bootcamp has started!

16.10.23

On Tuesday the 10th of October the kickoff for the 5-month long Investment Readiness Bootcamp was held at the Aurora Foundation Offices. With enthusiasm in the air, the day was dedicated to Welcoming and Introductions providing a holistic understanding of the bootcamp and its potential outcomes. The participants of the Investment Readiness Bootcamp are all start-ups Aurora has previously worked with, either through the Start-up Accelerator or short courses.

The session had a clear and essential purpose: to cultivate a deeper awareness of the IR Bootcamp among the attending Start-Ups. The event unfolded as a full-day immersion into the world of innovation and business growth.

The Bootcamp serves as a vital platform for honing entrepreneurial skills, fostering innovation, and creating a robust foundation for Start-Ups to thrive. These insights were instrumental in guiding the Start-Ups through Goal Setting Activities, allowing them to articulate their aspirations and expectations from the Bootcamp.

As we move forward, the Start-Ups are poised for a journey of growth, learning, and self-discovery. This session served as a precursor to what promises to be an inspiring and transformative IR Bootcamp. The enthusiasm and dedication displayed by these entrepreneurs reflect a shared commitment to building a better future through innovation and entrepreneurship.
