In this camp, you'll learn more about brainstorming solutions, managing projects, designing and developing a brand, and harnessing the power of social media to transmit your ideas to the public. You’ll even get hands-on experience, working with a team to develop a professional-looking presentation to pitch a great idea to potential investors.
