The Alpha Comeback

With a successful Bootcamp week coming to an end for our Residents, Velocity is by no means slowing down its programs for the term. We’re just getting started. At the forefront of Velocity’s programs are the Velocity Alpha Workshops. Starting next week, Wednesday, September 24, the Alpha program will be running full force for the duration of the term until November 19 with the final workshop, “Setup Your Business Like A Boss”. With workshops ranging in topics from “Finding Your Customers Online” to “Do People Want Your Sh*t?”, the term is bound to be an interesting and exciting time for entrepreneurially inclined students.

Each workshop will be focused on providing individuals with the knowledge of various aspects of being an entrepreneur and building a startup. The sessions will feature varying special guests to help facilitate the content. The workshops provide all interested students, regardless of faculty, a hands-on learning experience to gain practical, real world skills for creating any business.
