What Students Say About Us

Climate Action Bootcamp is brought to you by the same team behind BETA Camp, here's what past students have said about BETA Camp:

Andy Hwang

I had never taken a single business or computer science course during high school, so I was pretty intimidated going into BETA Camp. However, I slowly realized that since the camp was filled with so many different people with varying skillsets, all I needed to do was be confident in myself and the unique skillset that I bring to the table. Our team started a service that organized startups for streamers to help them network.

Peyton Verhoeven

I was apprehensive about applying due to the fact that BETA Camp is a fully virtual and remote program, but I shouldn't have been AT ALL. This program has forced me to grow and think laterally and more creatively than ever before.

BETA Camp surpassed my expectations and I would highly recommend this program.

Riane Long

BETA Camp has been one of the best experiences I've had. This program taught so many skills and knowledge necessary in building a startup. Industry professionals were brought in every week to give advice and personal experience.
What I liked about this program is that we were given the opportunity to apply the knowledge we learned by building our own startups from scratch.
