Entrepreneurial boot camps: A case study to evaluate and improve the establishment of methods, goals, strategies and tasks

by Green, Virginia, Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2007, 281 pages; 3263173


On establishing a framework for judging the efficacy of boot camps and other start-up incubators in promoting successful entrepreneurialism, and suggesting the structure of a model pilot "boot camp" that would systematically address participants needs and promote successful entrepreneurialism, and document its progression. A study will be made of a specific boot camp, including a formal analysis of its structure and goals, and of the components necessary for a pragmatic camp, based primarily on feedback gathered from questioning and interviewing of the participants. From this study general conclusions regarding the boot camp specifically and start-up incubators in general will be made, and used to begin establishing a framework for more systematic and methodical long-term research.
