Torrey Project
Startup Bootcamp

A bootcamp for business leaders ready to utilize
the power of business as a force for good. 

Applications are closed for Spring 2022 Bootcamp!

Startup Bootcamp

Entrepreneurs who apply to this program are willing to embrace stakeholder capitalism and use their business as a force for good.

 

We are passionate about our mission of transforming capitalism and harnessing the power of business as a force for good in the world. We teach “Stakeholder Theory” which calls on business leaders to take all stakeholders into consideration when making strategic decisions. This means creating value for employees, customers, suppliers and business partners. This challenges business leaders to consider their impact on the environment and society at large.

 

Since our launch in 2019, we have conducted 8 Bootcamps with 64 graduates. Our program is designed to emphasize the pursuit of purpose as well as profits. We especially encourage applications from women, BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) and those from underserved communities to apply for the program. We truly believe that these entrepreneurs who have been left behind can unlock tremendous opportunities that entrepreneurship can create.​​

Testimonials

From our graduates

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.

– Laurel Lees

The stakeholder approach is a very important part of the Torrey Project message. This refocused perspective on business works to create organizations that respect all stakeholders including people, the environment, and more.

– Charles Bullard

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.

– Matteo Tousignant-Hernandez

Listen to what our Alumni have to say

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.
