Camp WIT provides teens access to an entrepreneur accelerator program that culminates in a Pitch Competition where teens can win a $1000 prize.
Camp WIT is a one-week virtual experience which gives teens the opportunity to develop a business idea, build on an already existing business, connect with industry experts, network with like-minded teen entrepreneurs, be a guest on a podcast, and even get the chance for a tv appearance.
Only 25 teens will be accepted
Camp WIT is for the teen who is either just starting their entrepreneur journey or the teen who has their business but needs to get access to experts in the field of PR, Marketing, Press, Graphic Design, Business Development, Business Finance, and Pitching.
In this week-long accelerator teens get to connect with industry experts who will help them level up their business idea or business. The goal is to give teens access to the experts who are usually working with adult entrepreneurs. These adults are committed to helping our young entrepreneurs develop their business skills and support them as they prep for the WIT Pitch and try for the $1000 prize.
It was interesting to learn about the fundamentals of starting a business, especially the intricacies of developing a business plan, pitching it to potential investors, and figuring out how to use marketing and promotions to expand my business. For me, the most interesting part in all of this was just the feeling I got entering the immense world of business and that I am taking the steps to build upon something I, myself, have created. This was just all-around a one-of-a-kind and unique feeling and experience for me.- Shrey B. - March 20, 2022
WIT has given my business opportunities that I never had thought possible before I joined the community. Being within the community has helped me gain recognition for my business, develop essential business skills, and has even provided some funding for my business. WIT has helped me grow both as a teen and a business owner.- Julia D. - March 1, 2022
My experience with WIT has been amazing. WIT has established a community of involved teens and adults who support their passions. As a teen who has benefited from my time with WIT, I can say that i'll carry my experiences with me forever. To have adults encourage you and believe that your ideas can become a reality is an amazing feeling.- Sydney D. - March 4, 2022
