Really impressed by the program.”

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 risks and imagine. BETA Camp is a stepping stone towards this thought process.”

— Maya, BETA Camp Parent

“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.

How much does BETA Camp cost?

Fall 2023: $2,750 USD. Final applications close September 17th.

Summer 2024: $3,000 with early bird tuition.

Is it online?


BETA Camp is fully virtual and conducted through live interactive workshops with our mentors and instructors.

From the start, we intentionally designed BETA Camp to be fully virtual for 3 reasons:

1. You can work with instructors from the world’s top companies to get exposure and discover careers outside of of your local community. For example, the Head of Innovation at IKEA based at IKEA headquarters in Sweden has taught our Design Thinking workshop. We’ve had exceptional instructors like senior engineers at Waymo, Google’s self driving car unit, to CEOs of billion dollar companies come in to run workshops. You can’t find that at your locally based extracurricular program.

2. Students meet and work with likeminded peers from around North America and the world. Being able to work across cultures with people from different backgrounds is a skill all employers look for. Our students love that they can be in Toronto and work with team members in California, Ecuador or England!

3. Tech-enabled learning is better than offline learning. With the internet, the world is at your fingertips. We use remote work tools instead of what's available for their online school. For example, we use for collaborating. It's so much better than pen and paper or a whiteboard. Students can use templates, color code, set timers to vote for the best ideas, paste in information from elsewhere on the internet. When used properly, an online environment is more engaging and effective for learning.

You can read about students' experience with online learning program on our Success Stories page.

What are the important dates and deadlines?

Our Fall 2023 program is a 10-week fully virtual program runs from October 7th to December 16th.

Live interactive workshops with our instructors and mentors are on Saturdays from 12-3 pm ET.

Final applications close September 17th.

Who is BETA Camp for?

BETA Camp is for ambitious middle and high school students, ages 13 - 18 years old, located in the US, Canada or the UK. We look for curious, motivated and ambitious students. They are forever learning and keen on taking action. We do not require any previous knowledge in business, technology, or entrepreneurship - only an open mind and demonstrated motivation.

Do I need a startup, a startup idea, or a team before applying?

Not at all! Students are not expected to have a startup idea or a team upon joining. BETA Camp guides you through the process of ideation and using design thinking principles to narrow down the opportunity area and problem you want to tackle. Teams will be formed during the program. Students choose their teams and / or based are matched with a team based on personality, skillset, and interest by BETA Camp staff.

What happens when BETA Camp ends?

BETA Camp Fellowship: AlphaX

After BETA Camp, students may be invited to continue their startup and entrepreneurship journey with BETA Camp's Fellowship program, AlphaX. An invite-only opportunity for students who have shown dedication and effort during BETA Camp, AlphaX allows students to take their startup ideas to an Olympic level. Students will be asked to set bold goals, and given the personal guidance, structure and mentorship to achieve them.

Alumni Network & Beyond

All students are invited to our alumni community where students have the opportunity to remain connected with our vast network. Staff host bi-monthly events including networking opportunities. Some teams choose to continue with their startups (BETA Camp takes no equity or ownership with their startups). Others move to build new startups or non-profits with either the same team, their friends, or solo.We also see many students land internships through the network they built at BETA Camp with our mentors and instructors.
