The Health Sciences Entrepreneurship Bootcamp is a join initiative with the Conductor, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and BioVentures. The week-long residential camp will be held at the University of Central Arkansas, and is open to college students around the state. The camp will teach students the fundamentals of entrepreneurship, and give them the opportunity to formulate new health science ventures.

The Health Sciences Entrepreneurship Boot Camp will guide students through an immersive, five-day training program in which they learn how to start and fund an entrepreneurial venture, meet with influential faculty, entrepreneurs and mentors and become exposed to entity filing, patents and legal issues in entrepreneurship. Students will form teams, create and refine new venture ideas and talk to potential customers. The week-long camp will conclude with a Demo Day, during which the public is invited to watch the teams present their new venture ideas. Demo Day will be held at UCA on Friday, May 26.

The Conductor will be accepting up to 50 students for the Health Sciences Entrepreneurship Bootcamp. The residential camp is all-expenses-paid, and is funded through UAMS, BioVentures and the Conductor. Eligible students are rising juniors and seniors at Arkansas colleges and universities.
