BETA Camp Summer 2024
BETA Camp is for ambitious high school students who want to learn how to solve the world's most pressing problems and get real-world experience today.
4 weeks is all you need to:
My perspective completely shifted when I joined BETA Camp; I didn't know there was over 100 likeminded students willing to challenge themselves in the startup world...
The connections I built along with the mentorship I received has been phenomenal. BETA Camp surpassed my expectations and I would highly recommend this program. "
BETA Camp is an enriching experience that not only provides ‘university-level’ material, but also gives you the opportunity to solidify your learning by applying them to your own startup."
To anyone skeptical about the advantages of creating your own startup in just a few weeks, you really have no idea how much you will be able to learn and grow.
BETA Camp is an extraordinary introduction and window into the fundamental processes of business. As someone entering a business undergrad, it was a super insightful way of preparing me.”
Hearing from and developing connections with BETA Camp's speakers opened up a world of possibilities for me, painting a clearer picture of future roles I can now work towards."
BETA Camp will introduce you to endless future career possibilities, how to get there, and then equip you with the skills that will help you excel in these areas."
