Sierra College Students Encouraged to Join Startup Hustle

To inspire budding entrepreneurs to take action, Sierra College is encouraging students to participate in Hacker Lab’s Startup Hustle six-week entrepreneurial boot camp. Sierra College is participating in the CCC Maker state-wide makerspace initiative.

Anyone can apply by May 3 at no charge by explaining the problems that they are investigating and the prospective customers who would benefit from their solutions as well as why they want to participate in Startup Hustle. Sierra College student applicants who are selected to participate can do so at a discounted rate of $46. The program runs from May 9 to June 21, 2017. Hacker Lab is also offering several free sessions open to the public that may benefit students.

A Sierra College press release included this information:

“This is the fourth time that Hacker Lab has offered Startup Hustle, according to Eric Ullrich, Co-Founder, Hacker Lab. “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. As part of our makerspace community, these founders will be sharing their success stories and helping to encourage the next round of participants.”

In the press release, Carol Pepper-Kittredge, Statewide Project Manager, CCC Maker, indicated that students can benefit from participating in Startup Hustle.

“Students will work alongside experienced professionals applying their college skills in a real world environment,” said Pepper-Kittredge. “Startup Hustle can help students apply their passion and discover new career pathways.”
