Digital Bootcamp In UL

Six Castletroy College TY's attended a digital bootcamp in the Nexus Innovation Center in U.L last week. It was an eye opening experience as it focused on entrepreneurship and setting up your own business. Throughout the week we had some excellent speakers ranging from marketing specialists to finance experts, who shared their valuable knowledge on the high and lows of their journeys in the business world.

On the first day we were split into groups and began brainstorming unique business ideas. Throughout the week we worked on building our business and growing our ideas.

On Friday we then pitched Dragons Den style to a board of judges. Everyone in our group had a role in the presentation including marketing, finance, environmental aspects, advertising, production and sales.

Throughout the week we learned about the business model canvas, financing options and overcome our fears of public speaking. This course really opened my eyes to the opportunities within the business world, it was also a great chance to make new friends and push ourselves out of our comfort zones.
