Alfredo Osorio and Ash Maurya (international thought leaders behind BOMBAcamp), are proud to announce that the applications are now open for the November 2012 version of its Program BOMBA_5 WEEKS.
BOMBAcamp was founded to help entrepreneurs transform their ideas into innovative and successful startups.
Alfredo Osorio (Founder & CEO of BOMBAcamp & Co-Founder of Patagon.com) and Ash Maurya (Author of Running Lean, Lean Startup expert and worldwide mentor of entrepreneurs) are closely involved with the day-to-day operations and co-lead the mentor program for startup founders and program participants.
The only requirement that we ask is to have the soul of an entrepreneur. You can keep your day job (for now), and come on the afternoon and in the weekends. You can apply for the program with or without a team and/or idea.
