We're committed to empowering YOU

The Torrey Project Start-Up Bootcamp is designed for underserved entrepreneurs looking to build socially responsible, stakeholder-focused, and profitable businesses.


Applications Are Now Open!

Our 9th Cohort will begin in late April 2023.

In this cohort, we will be accepting applications from North American entrepreneurs with established businesses looking for their next round of funding. The focus of the Torrey Project Start-Up Bootcamp is on preparing for the real-life issues and challenges you will face in the market when raising institutional capital. Our classes are taught by experienced industry experts who have been there, done that, and have the scars to show for it.

Program Fees: $500 USD due before the program starts following acceptance of your application.

About the Start-Up Bootcamp

The Torrey Project Start-Up Bootcamp is designed to emphasize the pursuit of purpose as well as profit. We are committed to teaching, mentoring, and empowering future generations of entrepreneurs, in the U.S. and worldwide. We believe that business can, and must, be used as a force for positive change.

This all starts by teaching entrepreneurs the right mindset and providing the tools required to create a socially responsible, stakeholder-focused, and profitable business.


We educate participants in areas of conscious thinking, conscious leadership, and conscious capitalism, while also imparting insights and management tools developed by the founding Torrey Project team. We assist entrepreneurs in preparing their business plans for capital attraction and then support them with mentorship as they navigate their way towards conscious investors.

We encourage applications from women, BIPOC, AANHPI, and those from under-resourced communities to apply. We truly believe that entrepreneurs who have been traditionally overlooked can unlock tremendous opportunities. Our online program means we can reach more passionate entrepreneurs who want to do well, while also doing good.
