FutureHack Global Innovators Bootcamp 2019
Junior Achievement of Northern New England is excited to announce a pilot collaboration with FutureHack's Global Innovators Bootcamp (GIB), a transformative entrepreneurship program. GIB is designed to cultivate independent, self-motivated leaders, capable of solving the global challenges of tomorrow. Students learn the disruptive impact of future technologies such as robotics, 3D printing, synthetic biology, blockchain, etc. and how to incorporate these technologies into their solutions. Students develop skills such as leadership, teamwork, and public speaking and put these skills into practice by forming teams, and then ideating and pitching their startup projects to a panel of professional investors and entrepreneurs. After the bootcamp, students join our community of students and mentors that empower one another to realize their educational and career goals.
