FAQs

 

1) Do I need a team or can I attend the programme as an individual?
 
You can join the RG Bootcamp as an individual and you will join another team to progress an idea with other attendees.
 
2) How do ideas get selected?
 
On the first day, all idea-holders will present their idea in front of the audience and all participants will vote for their favourite ideas. The ideas that will get the majority vote will be selected to be worked on and team members will be assigned to the ideas (team formation). There is a risk that your idea may not be selected to be worked on by a team, however the principles you will learn by solving problems and supporting your team members will be invaluable to develop your own idea. Furthermore, you will network with like-minded people who may join you to launch your start-up in the next few months. At RG bootcamp you will all learn how to get started and move from an "early idea" stage to a "business plan" stage. The best case scenario is that your idea will get voted and you will get a team to progress it and pitch in front of judging panel. At that point you would have refined your idea, tested it, communicated it and gained publicity and support. 
 
3) Do I need a business or economics background in order to participate at the ReloadGreece Bootcamp?
 
No, you do not need to have a business background nor university degree to participate in this programme. In fact, we encourage participation from all backgrounds, all ages and walks of life! We believe that the more diverse the participants are the better results we will get!
 
4) Do I need to have an idea to attend this programme?
 
No you do not need to have an idea to participate in this programme. You will work on an idea as you will be formed into teams. All you need to have is the appetite to learn about entrepreneurship and the willingness to contribute your skills and knowledge to the team you will be working with.
 
5) I am worried that someone will steal my idea, if I share it with so many people!
 
Ideas are worthless. For an idea to come to life, it needs dedication and years of sweat, tears and capital (money) to become a successful business/enterprise. Unless someone, cares about the same thing and they are at the "right time” on their entrepreneurship journey, they will not steal your idea. Do not waste time waiting, share your idea and join forces with people to make a difference in the world with your venture. Also you are unique. That means that no-one will ever implement the idea you have in the same way that you will. No-one will ever make the same sequence of decisions that you will, through your unique entrepreneurship journey. The best thing that can happen will be to find a co-founder (someone who equally cares about the same idea/cause and is willing to go through the journey to build it with you)! This is a huge win-win situation! Most people have ideas but struggle to find like-minded and skilled people to follow them on this entrepreneurship journey. The more you share your idea with people the more chances you will meet the right partners who will support you in the years to come! Start-ups with co-founders are much more successful than start-ups with a single founder. Co-founding implies that you can work with people and can navigate through difficulties. Also from an investors point of view, it means that you have continuity (the business will not stop if you are ill or move on)!
 
6) Will the programme be running Greek or in English?
 
The language for all speakers, mentors and materials provided throughout the Reload Greece Bootcamp, will be English. You do not have to worry about being fluent as almost everyone will be able to speak in Greek and will be able to support you with unknown words (do not be shy, ask away!). However we will not switch to speaking Greek, we will conduct all conversations, talks and workshops in English, so treat this as a great opportunity to practice your English. We do not judge accents or mistakes, we love them!!!
 
7) I have an idea for a film production company can I participate? 
 
Yes, the RG Bootcamp programme is industry agnostic, meaning that the knowledge and mentoring you will receive is universal yet tailored to your specific idea and team dynamics. The programme is designed in such a way that you will receive invaluable support in moving your idea into a formalised Business Plan.
 
8) Where will the RG Bootcamp happen? 
 
The programme will run on the premises of Deree (The American College of Greece) in Agia Paraskevi. The address is: American College of Greece (Deree), Gravias 6, Agia Paraskevi, 153 42, Athina, Greece.
 
9) Will I need to bring lunch
 
No the price you pay includes lunch. 
 
10) What are the daily start and end times of the event?
 
We start promptly (on time) at 9AM in the morning every day and finish by 7pm (we may go for dinners together) and on Friday we well stay on until later in the night for networking and the celebratory party. It is meant to be an immersive event so we expect you to take part 100% in all activities! 
 
11) Does the price cover accommodation or airfares
 
No, it only covers the cost of the RG Bootcamp programme but if you are joining us from outside of Athens or Greece and need help on where to stay please let us know and we will do our best to help.
