Future Leaders Entrepreneurship Summer Camp for Teens


Think you can invent the next big thing? Well, we’ve got news for you—you can.

The MaRS Future Leaders Boot Camp is a week-long summer camp program for high-school students, where they will be taught the entrepreneurial mindset and be challenged to start a company in one week.

Lead the future, launch a company.

Future Leaders is for problem-solvers, dreamers, mad scientists, and anyone who ever ran a lemonade stand as a kid. This camp is fun, creative and intense—just like you.

Students will collaborate with peers and mentors, and use the many tools available at MaRS Discovery District to see what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur.

The program is an opportunity to learn the foundations of entrepreneurship and experience the creative ideation process through prototyping, testing and pitching business solutions with the support of experienced entrepreneurs and dynamic teachers.

On the final day of the camp, you and your collaborators will have 60 seconds to convince a panel of investors that your idea is a viable and creative solution to an important problem. If you have the best idea, we’ll give you $1,000.
