One of the key aspects of successful entrepreneurship is building a community of like-minded individuals and future business partners who will become your core network and lifelong friends. An early network of amazing peers and mentors open the door to future opportunities like internships, reference letters, business partnerships, and investments.

The Parent Perspective

Parents share what makes BETA Camp a critical piece of personal development for middle school and high school students

“My daughter went from struggling to find her place in extracurriculars to landing an internship with a global startup based in Amsterdam (we are in Canada) through BETA Camp connections and launching her own graphic design agency with the skills that she gained. BETA Camp gave her confidence and skills but also helped her find meaning and passion.”

— Jeff, BETA Camp Parent

“BETA Camp is building future leaders. As the world evolves, the work environment and job availability are going to change. Some jobs are going to be obsolete. AI is going to change the world in unprecedented ways. Who is going to succeed then? - leaders and people who are willing to take the risk and imagine. BETA Camp is a stepping stone towards this thought process.”

— Maya, BETA Camp Parent

“My daughter has loved BETA Camp. She's learning real-world problem solving, communication and ideation skills that aren't honed in schools. She entered the program intimidated as she was one of the youngest, but is emerging with newfound confidence and important skills for the future. Really impressed by the program.”

— Kayla, BETA Camp Parent

“My son learned a lot from connecting with mentors and colleagues. He is very excited in setting up a startup company with his friends. He is very engaged in BETA Camp activities and the virtual program has surpassed all my expectations of virtual programming.”

— Judy, BETA Camp Parent

“My twin daughters are attending BETA Camp during their school term. They are enjoying it a lot and always looking forward for their socials, startup meetings and startup guidance sessions. Their knowledge in business ideas has grown. I am impressed by the organizers.”

— Noureen, BETA Camp Parent

“My daughter attended BETA camp after SHAD. She absolutely loved it. All students started extremely professional businesses with complex marketing. It is a ton of work but so much fun, so much learned... I was really impressed and I think it was absolutely excellent for her and for her entire cohort.”

— Catherine, BETA Camp Parent
