On November 7th and 8th, LaSalle College hosted the first edition of its Bootcamp, consisting of a series of activities focusing on understanding the management tools available for starting a business and being a successful entrepreneur.
In teams of three, students presented their projects before a jury of experts and coaches. The winning team, Milléune Pâtes, won the $500 scholarship offered by the LaSalle College Student Association (AGEL). The Milléune Pâtes concept is a bistro-style pasta bar offering a diverse menu of home-made pastas and health-food selections primarily for office workers.

Furthermore, the New Age team won a $200 prize thanks to its innovative 3D printing solutions.
During the two days of activities, more than 60 students took part in the entire Bootcamp program and 8 coaches from both the International School of Business and Technologies and the International School of Hotel Management and Tourism lent a hand to the teams interested in taking up the challenge.
Given the success of this first edition, it is certain that the Bootcamp will be back in 2016.
The Creative Entrepreneur Program is open to ALL LaSalle College students. To find out more about upcoming activities and workshops, visit the CEP’s website.
Again this year, students interested in entrepreneurship had the opportunity to develop their idea with support from teacher experts in the field who helped them take steps toward fulfilling the dream of building their own company.
