Move ideas to actionable business plans

Lehigh Valley LaunchBox (LVLB) is launching a Fall 2020 LVLB Virtual StartUp Bootcamp for people with a scalable business idea who need help turning it into an actionable business plan. The virtual Bootcamp will run for six weeks with an optional seventh week reserved for individual practice pitch coaching sessions. The Bootcamp, which has no fee, starts Aug. 26 and runs once a week from 6-8 p.m. Each session will be taught by expert advisers. 

Participants are encouraged to attend all six classes and are required to attend at least four. Participation is by application only and people of diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.  Applications are invited from any Pennsylvania-based entrepreneur. Applications must be submitted by Aug. 10. Accepted applicants will be notified by Aug. 17. No affiliation with Penn State is required. Bootcamp participants will be encouraged to apply for Penn State Lehigh Valley LaunchBox grants which will be awarded during the StartUp Lehigh Valley competition on Nov. 4.

“The topics covered range from developing your business model to marketing, supply chain, financial modeling and legal risks.”
