Yale, once and perhaps always the protector of liberal education in the U.S., has quite an entrepreneurial culture. The newest Yale Entrepreneurial Institute Newsletter came out and there are great things happening, including their summer start-up bootcamp. From the YEI newsletter:
We are excited to announce the Yale Entrepreneurial Institute’s 2012 Summer Fellowship—a 10-week startup bootcamp for student entrepreneurs who have an exciting idea for the next big thing. Over the course of a summer at YEI’s incubator, Fellows will receive everything they need to bring their company from ideation to fruition, including a stipend of up to $20,000, 2-3 experienced mentors in their field of business, regular exposure to successful entrepreneurs and investors, access to reduced-cost legal and accounting services, and much more.
