Torrey Project is going online!
We have our very first online educational program starting Monday October 26th. Our new format will combine some of the most appreciated elements of our “Bootcamp for Conscious Entrepreneurs” with a whole new cast of speakers, business experts and thought leaders. It will be an interesting transition, and we are sure to experience a few growing pains as we enter this new era. That said, we are excited and energized by the challenge. The Torrey Project board has approved and has funded the first phase of development of the Torrey Project Academy, a central hub for all things entrepreneur related. Stay tuned as we begin to roll out elements of the Academy later this year and into 2021.
Our new online program is geared towards first time entrepreneurs and is dedicated to founders who are willing to consider embracing stakeholder capitalism and who are sincerely interested in using their new business as a force for good in the world.
In the upcoming October program, we are excited to share our new partners that will be participating in the program as speakers and more. More to be announced in the coming weeks:
Jessa Spainhower & Laurel Glass Lees, Co-Founders of A STELLAR CO - Torrey Project Cohort 1 alumni
Kelly O’Hara, Founder of Sustainable CFO
This new online format for the bootcamp will begin Monday October 26th and will continue for 4 weeks, ending week of November 16th. You will be a part of our 5th Cohort, joining the 28 other alumni upon completion!
The schedule will consist of:
2 x 2-hour to 2.5 hour lecture-type sessions in the evenings 6pm-8:30pm with breaks, each week (*Required)
1 x 2-hour Open Office Hours during the day, each week (Optional)
3 x 2.5-hour “Torrey Tank” sessions (pitching & feedback related) at the start of the 4 weeks, the middle, and at the end of the 4 weeks. (Optional, but highly recommended & encouraged from past participants!)
Homework assignments each week (mostly reading and videos) (*Required)
We will be using Zoom as the main tool for hosting lecture sessions, Torrey Tank, and office hours. We will be releasing more details on the October Cohort #5 as we get closer to the date, including specific lecture topics, speakers, and times.
We welcome entrepreneurs who are committed to doing businesses in a way that creates value not only for investors, but also for other stakeholders like employees, local communities, the environment and more. You don't need to be an expert in multi-stakeholder operating systems to be accepted into the bootcamp, but you do need to have a viable business idea and be strongly committed to using business as a tool to make the world a better place.
Due to the generous sponsorship of donors who also see business as a tool for good,
our bootcamp is provided free of cost for all accepted entrepreneurs.

Sponsor a Bootcamp- And Put Your Name on It
The Torrey Project Startup Bootcamp consists of 4 intense weeks of night followed by a 12-month mentorship program, all designed to help entrepreneurs create strong, sustainable, multi-stakeholder focused businesses.
We are currently seeking corporate sponsors who can help us cover the cost of delivering our next cohorts of the startup bootcamp. Corporate sponsors will get to put their name on the Bootcamp and, if they wish, can help us deliver sessions of the bootcamp using trusted subject matter experts.

I was looking to start my own business but didn’t know I could make money doing good for the world. Torrey Project changed my mind and gave me the courage and resources to do it.
The stakeholder approach is a very important part of the Torrey message. This refocused perspective on business works to create organizations that respect all stakeholders including people, the environment, and more
We wanted to learn more about conscious capitalism and how to effectively create and maintain a startup. My expectations as a entrepreneur and leader were exceeded throughout my experience within the Torrey Project.
