This is a workshop – each seminar will be approximately 50 minutes long with teaching and hands-on action. There will be a 10-minute break between each seminar. See the schedule below. If you’re late, please come regardless. We just ask that you respect the filming and learning of the other entrepreneurs and slip in quietly. If you need to miss a day, please advise one of your instructors.
What to Bring to the Boot Camp:
- Your Maverick Entrepreneurs’ Battle Guide
- A Laptop computer with MS Word and Excel (doesn’t matter which version of MS Office you have). Preferably, this laptop will have a wireless internet connection. There will be free wireless connection in the training room.
- Your Maverick USB Drive with Electronic Templates
- Your current business plan, structure or collateral material for reference
- A calculator (optional) and Pen/paper for notes
- Your 6-Business Modeling Diagrams (Optional) per the 14 hours of Webinars
What to Wear to Training and Meals/Drinks & Breaks: Please wear business casual or business attire each day, EXCEPT on the last day when you will be pitching investors. On Monday, you should wear your best business attire to impress investors. Every day you will be given an hour lunch break. There will be drinks (coffee/soda/water) available all day. On Monday after the Investor Combat Experience, we will be hosting a complimentary Graduation Celebration cocktail hour with our Investors where you can mingle and further discuss your businesses.
Photo Release and Confidentiality Agreement: Maverick may film certain section of this boot camp seminar. All entrepreneurs will need to sign a photo release. However, if you do not want to be featured in any one-on-one testimonials or have your pitch filmed, we will respect that. Please just indicate this on your photo release that will be given to you on the first day. Additionally, all entrepreneurs and investors will be signing a mutual Non-Disclosure and Confidentiality Agreement first thing in the boot camp so that you and everyone else can feel free to discuss your business model with your peer entrepreneurs, instructors and the investors.
Investor Pitch Day on Monday: Please bring your prototypes or photos of them (if applicable) and collateral materials that you can use to pitch investors. You will only have approximately 20 minutes total. This is done like it is in real life – you only have a few minutes to catch their attention. If you have a story-board/diagram that explains your business model, we will have an easel and a table that you can use to display it. You will only have a few minutes to set up in between your pitch and the entrepreneur before you. Unlike television shows you see, investors will not be making money offers at this pitch session, (because that’s not how it’s done in reality), but they will be telling you if they’re interested in learning more about your business and you’ll be given their direct contact information. Fear not, you will also have 1,000’s of other opportunities to pitch investor via Maverick Investors Group and our state-of-the art Web platform. These investors are your practice session, but they too can fund you if they desire.
