1. We ask the Right Questions
The sprintup Bootcamp isn't about giving you all the answers (but we can if that's what you want ...). We set up the sprintup Bootcamp to get you thinking outside the box, with our prompts, daily check-ins, questions and inspiration in the form of Live Q&A's with Female Entrepreneurs who have been stuck in your mindset and so much more. Why? This way you learn so much faster!
2. Learn from other Female Entrepreneurs
From 2015 and onwards we've supported more than a 1000+ women. We are the #sprintees and strongly believe in the power of a network and learn from each other.
Every day we invite a female entrepreneur who share their experiences with you and answer all your questions.
3. Meet your Partner
During each workshop we connect you with other (new) sprintees. Together we forge connections and motivate one another to help overcome your fears and take action as a team.
WHO JOINS THE SPRINTUP BOOTCAMP?
My idea is to produce and sell handmade soap to businesses to hand out to their customers. I’m most excited about fine-tuning this concept to roll out sooner than later. My biggest challenge is sourcing materials due to the pandemic.
My idea is to utilize technology to attract art lovers in learning to appreciate art in a different way. I am excited to meet everyone here and to learn how sprint work can help my work. Biggest challenge is that I could not think of an angle to start my own business in art and tech yet, so would love to meet more people here and learn from each other.
I've launched a Diversity & Inclusion network with the aim of bringing diverse minds together to achieve more diversity & inclusion in companies.
I'm super excited about this. I really need to move forward with this and have come to a bit of a downward slope with the current situation and having to spend more time with kids. So I need a push in the right direction so I can get things going and build the network to what it needs to be. Really looking forward to meeting everyone on the bootcamp!
I’m the CEO of VictimsVoice. We help victims of domestic violence capture the evidence of their abuse in a private and secure way so they can legally seek justice if and when they’re ready. I’m most excited about focusing on scaling my business as we head out of a sequestered COVID environment.
My biggest challenge right now is coordinating all the different areas of the business that have to get done so we CAN scale.
My vision is create video games, software and other products, all with the condiment of love and care. I expect my products not only entertain but also help people. Some years ago I decided the crazy idea to become a video game developer being from a third world country where there is no game industry. I went to study to the UK to prepare for this, I try to teach people to get into game development. I have several MPVs, but my weakness is how to make this sustainable, I cannot work on this full time or make a living, my country has no support to startups in taxes, funds, etc.
Belonging to Sprinters allows me to be surrounded of very inspiring woman, if they could do it I am hoping I can do it one day. Thank you for the opportunity.

I am a founder of Traveller. We are eco-community platform for global travellers. I am working on adjust business strategy among covid 19 while still doing daily base customer interview to figure out how to serve customer.
I am excited to scale out and more partnership collaboration with other start up to promote environment awareness.
What is the application process?
Once you submit an application, our team gets together to review applications on a rolling basis.
I’m nervous as I’ve never done a bootcamp before…
Please don’t worry, it’s natural to feel nervous, many of our sprintees feel the same way. The sprintup Bootcamp creates a warm and welcoming environment and we promise that you’ll start to relax and unwind as soon as you join.
I don't know anything about startups or business, can I join?
Of course! Doing business does not require technical skills. The hardest thing is ... to start, to dare to take action, to go from 0 to 1. Then it's about being super resilient and creative.
Do I need to know how to code to participate?
Absolutely not. We have a list of tools that will allow you to create an online business without having to write a single line of code. That said, if you can code, thet's pretty awesome!
Is it okay to join on my own?
Yes, most of our sprintees join alone and it’s the perfect opportunity to feel free and let go. You will also meet other sprintees with similar interests and experiences, plus you can make lifelong friends.
What type of women will be on the sprintup Bootcamp?
Women interested in sharing a common goal to transform, evolve and move forward with their startup. A community of like-minded women on a mission to grow and prosper.
Do I need to have an idea?
No! Don't worry if you don't know what to sell! At the sprintup Bootcamp, you will learn how to generate good ideas and test them immediately :) If you already know what you want to sell, it's great, we will help you do it better.
Will I be made to share anything personal issues during the sessions?
No, you won’t. Although the workshops are in a group setting, they are not group therapy sessions. You go through the workshop privately in relation to your personal situation. You are not made to share anything you don’t wish to, although you are welcome to contribute if you so choose. Anything you do share is in the strictest confidence so you can relax and let go knowing you are in a safe, discreet environment.
Where does the sprintup Bootcamp take place?
Once you join you'll be invited to join our online community. This is where all our sprintees get together with our coaches.
Do I have to be there for each session?
It's recommended! Being present at each session is necessary, the group of sprintees will work together and help each other. We will chat online the rest of the time, but during the live sessions, you are advised to be connected.
Simply email us if your questions are not answered here.
