Intensive bootcamp course on startups accepting applications until May 7

May 1, 2017

Lobo Labs startup class

"Lobo Labs," powered by Creative Startups, offers a "business bootcamp" as a UNM course for credit for Fall 2017 in partnership with the UNM Innovation Academy.

The class is geared for prospective entrepreneurs who may be planning a startup company, or students with good ideas who want to learn more about what it takes to be successful in launching their business.

Lobo Labs is a selective program. Students must fill out a short application explaining their ideas and interest in entrepreneurship. Once selected, faculty liaison Rob Delcampo* will contact students on how to complete their registration with UNM. The application should take less than an hour to complete.

A short video is requested to help introduce prospective students to the decision makers. Production quality is not an issue. Videos recorded on phones are acceptable.

Applications for the class are accepted through May 7.

Visit the Creative Startups page to apply. Acceptance decisions are made on quality of concept, not the phase of the business.
