WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Purdue students took part in a three-day business boot camp this weekend. The Purdue version of the 3 Day Startup Program came to campus this weekend.
Students went through crash course training on how to successfully produce a business plan. The program is capped off by presenting a business pitch to a board of panelists. President of the program Rahul Patni said this helps students gain confidence for life after college.
"Students can realize that they can do this, they have the power to do this, there's nothing stopping them," said Patni. "Building that confidence in the students and making sure they're not fearful and they can get started from the get-go if they come across a good idea."
Patni went on to emphasize the development of the students' ability to present their ideas to larger groups of people.
"They've gone up and given amazing demos and pitches," said Patni. "So they've been able to build that communication skill and as I said before convincing other people that your idea is worth something."
Members of the 3 Day Start Up hope to build on this weekend's event. They plan to bring more programs like these to campus in the near future.
