Turning Entrepreneurial Dreams into Businesses




(ROCKLIN, CA) -- Hacker Lab announced the fall 2016 round of Startup Hustle and is taking applications for the six-week entrepreneurial boot camp through September 16, 2016. The program will be offered at both the Midtown and Hacker Lab powered by Sierra College in Rocklin locations.
 
According to Eric Ullrich, Co-Founder, Hacker Lab, this is the third time that the program has been offered. "We've enhanced the tools and fine-tuned the training," said Ullrich. "Our past participants have successfully launched startups, opened up new markets for their products, published their apps and won funding to take it to the next level. It is gratifying that they are sharing their success stories and helping to encourage the next round of participants."
 
"The immersive experience of Startup Hustle has led to remarkable breakthroughs," said Ullrich. "The mentors and speakers inspire entrepreneurs to take action. Participants have access to proven methodology, practical assignments and beneficial connections that stretch their thinking about customers and their business model."
 
A combination of "anytime, anywhere learning" and in-person sessions, held from Sept. 29 to Nov. 17 and offered in Rocklin and Sacramento, will enable participants to use the latest startup tools, work on their idea, test it with customers, gain insights from mentors, research the market, reframe their concept based on what they learned and develop a pitch. There is an optional demo night where participants can make their pitches to the community.
 
Applicants submit one minute videos about the problems they are investigating and the prospective customers who benefit from their solutions as well as why they want to participate in Startup Hustle. The initial application is free and once you've been notified that you have been accepted, you pay the fee of $46 for Sierra College students, $149 for Hacker Lab members and $300 for non-members.
 
Sierra College is one of the first community colleges in the United States to establish a public-private partnership with a community maker space. Sierra College students are encouraged to participate in Startup Hustle because it complements what students learn in the classroom and delivers career skills valued by employers.
 
Sponsors of Startup Hustle include The Shop VSP Global, Business Composer, Sierra College, City of Rocklin, SMUD, California Community Colleges Workforce and Economic Development Division, City of Sacramento, Sierra College CACT, Golden Sierra and Bosley Till Neue & Talerico LLP.
