Global Innovators Bootcamp is FutureHACK’s transformative 2-week program based on the MIT Innovation and Entrepreneurship frameworks. The program is designed to create independent, self-motivated leaders, capable of identifying and solving the global challenges of tomorrow. Students will take a journey of self-discovery to identify their passion and purpose. They will also learn about the disruptive impact of future technologies such as robotics, 3D printing, and coding. At the end of the camp, students will form teams, ideate and pitch their own business plan to a panel of judges from industry and education.
The Bootcamp is a transformative and immersive 2-week residential summer program. (The 2017 Bootcamp took place at MIT and Tufts). After an introduction to future technologies, students are taken through an inward process to identify their passions and talents. During the course of the program, students will learn about MIT’s groundbreaking Entrepreneurship curriculum and use the curriculum to ideate and pitch solutions to real-world problems.
FutureHack believes that students should have the skill and knowledge to “learn to learn.” The students do not sit in boring lectures and get spoonfed information, rather students learn through a series of interactive lectures, hands-on maker activities, entrepreneurial panels and discussions, team building and group work. Participants will also learn the importance of teamwork, leadership, and communication by forming teams to design and launch a real startup business and participate in a pitch presentation.
