Experience the first year of a Start Up in one week. This camp is an action-packed simulation game about entrepreneurship for teams. It realistically simulates starting a new tech business from scratch: developing an idea into a product or service, finding partners, creating a business model, designing marketing plans and media, raising investment from investors and sales. The goal is to end the week by making a profit. The experience involved teamwork and problem solving to overcome challenges that occur during the lifecycle of a business. Participants may use this experience as a springboard to enter IMSA's Power Pitch contest. This camp includes field trips to 1871, Chicago's incubator for digital startups.
