Wisconsin Entrepreneurial Bootcamp (WEB) — FAQs

Application Deadline: March 28, 2014

Things to think about before applying to WEB 2014:

You will not be able to return to an incomplete application, so before you begin, you may find it helpful to prepare in advance your answers to the following questions:

  • Current degree program
  • Past degrees
  • Your responsibilities in current job (if employed)
  • Faculty non-financial sponsorship (while not required, it is beneficial if you have one)
  • Prior business or entrepreneurial experiences
  • Why you are interested in this program and how it fits your goals
  • Where is your greatest expertise (e.g. subject of your thesis)


*Note: You must complete the entire application online and submit it to be in the consideration set for admission.

What are the times of the event?

You should plan on 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday – Thursday and on Friday the event ends at 3:30 p.m.

Is this really free?

Yes. This program is made possible at no cost to the participants by a generous gift from John and Tashia Morgridge and others.

Can I get credit for this?

Not at this time.

Is this open to international students?


Do I have to be a UW student to enroll in WEB?

Non-student employees of the University are not eligible. You must be seeking an advanced degree, Ph.D. or be a post-doc at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Who can be faculty sponsors?

We would prefer that your faculty sponsor be from your particular department. Many students are using the head of their lab. The time requirement from the faculty sponsor is very limited. They will be invited to attend an event or two but it will be strictly optional. They will not have to give up any of their own time if they do not want to do so.
