Learn how to build a startup from Philly’s startup elite at PSL Bootcamp, a new, free, three-month program.

Register by Sept. 15

The program, which will meet weekly, is reminiscent of PSL University, an earlier education effort from Philly Startup Leaders. It features leadership from venture-backed startups like DuckDuckGo, Guru and RJMetrics talking about ideation, lean startup methodology, business models and more. The program is free but requires a $50 deposit that will be returned at the end of the bootcamp.

PSL Bootcamp is a response to some of the shortcomings of the PSL Accelerator, which paired startups with more experienced entrepreneurs last winter, said co-organizer Adam Kearney. The bootcamp is “prep work” for next year’s accelerator, he wrote in an email.

“We will be raising the bar for accelerator companies and lowering the [number of] participants, most likely,” Kearney added.

Also: the organizers want to get more women involved, Kearney said. There was only one female cofounder out of the 11 PSL Accelerator startups. So far, there are no female instructors for PSL Bootcamp, but Kearney is working on changing that.
