The University of Texas at San Antonio’s Center for Innovation and Technology Entrepreneurship (CITE) will host the Jackson Walker Technology Entrepreneurship Boot Camp. This is the preeminent event for kick starting your technology career, either as an entrepreneur on your own or an entrepreneur for a company.
The daylong boot camp will feature expert presentations on fundamental technology entrepreneurship skills including opportunity identification, business planning, IP and business law, marketing, and funding a technology start-up in San Antonio.
The keynote address will be given by Vin Montes, ’04, founder and CEO of NERD Beverage, the focus and memory drink. Montes will share his story of how he has created a multi-million dollar enterprise from invention to production, marketing, sales and growth.
Montes created the original scientific formula for NERD Beverage as a pre-med student at UTSA. Through his initial capital raise, beverage formulation development and company founding, Montes has increased the market share of NERD Beverage and continues to open in new markets throughout the country.
The Entrepreneurship Boot Camp is co-sponsored by the UTSA Colleges of Business and Engineering, Startech and the Office of the UTSA Vice President for Research.
Registration is free for UTSA faculty, students and staff as well as faculty and students from other institutions. The boot camp is $95 for the general public. Payment can be made by cash or check the day of the event. For more information, call (210) 458-5782.
