Entrepreneurship Camps

The DryErase Academy
The DryErase Academy Entrepreneurship camps are tailored for middle school and high school students looking to get exposure to life as an entrepreneur.
Throughout the week, we’ll mix in role-playing, brainstorming sessions, theory, and actually laying the foundations of starting their own company (yes, they really will be starting their own company!). 
All of our sessions will be led by ivy-league educated seasoned entrepreneurs/industry experts who will be able to tailor their lessons to a younger audience and provide valuable feedback to students as they begin their entrepreneurial journey.

Benefits

Develop an Entrepreneurial Mindset

Our camps will expose students to what it really means to be an entrepreneur and give them the tools to succeed should they choose to take that path or apply it to a future field of their choice. 

Learn from Expert Practioners

Our experts are current seasoned entrepreneurs that know the ins and outs of starting your own company and the pitfalls that you should avoid along your journey. 

Real-Time Experience

Our students learn about the skills and expertise necessary to succeed as an entrepreneur but we will actually put these skills to the test by having them formulate their own startup idea and pitch them to a panel of startup experts. 

Custom Platform

We use a custom platform that allows students to watch recorded lectures, complete group activities, online games/puzzles, and submit all assignments from their tablet or computer during all of our in-person lectures.

Flexible Approach

The DryErase Academy was created with flexibility in mind. Our programs are recorded live which allows for clarification of earlier topics covered in class while ensuring students never miss any materials covered in class.
