Hell yes! SproutCamp is not just for techies, geeks, or seasoned entrepreneurs. It's for anyone with an idea and the passion to purse it.

Do you pay mentors?

No, but we do facilitate Mentor Shares and perks for all coaches and mentors.

What do you do to protect Intellectual Property (IP)?

Everything that happens at SproutCamp is technically in the public domain. However, it is extremely unlikely that an idea will get stolen, and we are firm believers that ideas aren’t worth anything unless you execute on them. In addition, your idea will probably change dramatically over time (actually within the first two weeks of SproutCamp beginning, it probably will). The real value is in your ability to execute properly, which is something very few people currently get right.

Do I need to know how to write code?

Nope. If you don't have a technical bone in your body or person on your team, we have coders and designers standing by to help you prototype.

Do I have to have a Tech Idea?

Nope. But we put a strong emphasis on Tech in any business, since Tech is what makes things cheaper, better, faster.

Do you offer refunds?
