The Business Association of Stanford Entrepreneurial Students (BASES) and Princeton’s Business Today (BT) brought together Silicon Valley’s top VCs, CEOs, and startup teams to guide 100 of the most talented student entrepreneurs from around the world.
TeachAIDS Founder and CEO, Dr. Piya Sorcar, was invited to give a Keynote address. The other Keynote speakers included Vinod Khosla, Co-Founder of Sun Microsystems and Founder of Khosla Ventures; Guy Kawasaki, bestselling author and Silicon Valley venture capitalist; Douglas Leone, Partner at Sequoia Capital; Max Levchin, Founder and CEO of Slide; and JB Straubel, CTO and Founding Member at Tesla Motors. Aside from the keynotes, dozens of leading entrepreneurs from Silicon Valley were brought together to be judges, speakers, and business workshop leaders at the four-day conference.
The 100 most talented young entrepreneurs were selected from 67 schools and over 28 countries to attend this all-expense paid trip to Stanford University for E-Bootcamp training. The four-day event was designed to guide the entrepreneurs through a series of workshops, panels, and talks to help shape their big ideas and business plans. Considered the most selective international entrepreneurship conference, E-Bootcamp ends with the young entrepreneurs pitching their business plans to a panel of judges.
The conference was sponsored by dozens of reputable companies including Business Today, American Airlines, Yahoo!, Sequoia Capital, Accel Partners, Highland Capital Partners, You Noodle, and Goldman Sachs.
