    The UC Davis Pre-College Startup Entrepreneurship Program equips high school students with skills for product building and company launching. Unlike traditional tech entrepreneurship, which emphasizes "move fast and break things," this program focuses on practical experience in industries like food, healthcare, energy, and engineering. Students gain hands-on training and education to develop real-world businesses in emerging fields leveraging UC Davis's research expertise.

    Students will focus on hands-on application of lessons, with the opportunity to:

    • Meet and network with startup founders
    • Work through the Lean Business Model canvas
    • Discover what investors look for in good startup ideas
    • Create and experiment with their own business models
    • Interview customers in an effort to identify product-market fit
