CEO Residency Bootcamp | Powered by: Future Founders

Join  Future Founders for a special CEO pop-up of their innovative  Residency Bootcamp, an idea-stage accelerator that will cover topics ranging from customer discovery to pitching. The Residency combines hands-on learning with topical lectures that will help you focus on taking action with your idea immediately. CEO Residents can expect to leave the Bootcamp more prepared to bring their idea into the market with increased confidence around pitching their company. 



The Residency bootcamp will take place on October 31 from 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. 


Who Participates: 
  • Idea generators / early-stage companies 
  • College students that are pre-revenue 
  • Those interested in learning the fundamentals to launching and growing their startup strategically
Expected Outcomes: 
  • Avenues to better define and understand your customer  
  • Formulate a minimum viable product (M.V.P.)
  • Make more informed decisions through key performance indicators 
  • Understand pricing and profitability 
  • Prepare and build confidence in pitching and sales 


Future Founders will select a total of forty (40) attendees into this prestigious program. Fifteen (15) participants of the program will be chosen from the accepted students of the pitch competition and twenty-five (25) will be selected from the pool of students that apply for the CEO Global Pitch Competition, but are not accepted into the on-site competition. 


Future Founders & CEO hope that by accepting students who applied to the competition, with a great idea, and aren't quite at the level necessary to participate in the competition that the residency will act as a kick-start to the Global Conference Experience.
