BT Young Scientist Business Bootcamp

30 intermediate and senior students take part in BT Young Scientist Business Bootcamp in March each year.  The students will be part of 4 days of workshops and presentations where they will experience the world of technology commercialisation and entrepreneurship.

Bootcamp 2020

We have created this programme to encourage further innovation by our young scientists and provide them with commercialisation skills to carry forward into their careers and lives. The bootcamp is held at University College Dublin (UCD).

The Bootcamp experience has been life changing. I feel it has really opened up doors for me in regards to career options, developing my project and communicating better with people. I have met and heard from some amazing and inspiring people and I feel I have become more creative and innovative in the way I think.
