My Pop-Up Shoppe

January 20 @ 9:00 am - January 21 @ 5:00 pm

Free

Are you tired of hearing you don’t have enough experience? My Pop-Up Shoppe is your chance to create your own experience.

My Pop-Up Shoppe is an opportunity for students to run a real startup for the weekend. We’ll provide everything you need to make the startup operate. You’ll receive the business model on Saturday morning. Then your team will work to market, sell, operate, and brand your startup. You’ll be selling real products/services to real people, while you are making real money.

This opportunity is for all majors who are interested in receiving more experience but fits best with: Journalism, Marketing, Management, Entrepreneurship, Communications, Ad/PR, Graphic Design, Photography/Videography, Leadership, English, Economics, or anyone else interested in learning the hard skills of running a business.

In one weekend students will gain an introduction to the real skills employers are looking for. Everyone has the potential to go out and create their own work. This is an opportunity to gain real-life, valuable skills like communication, teamwork, marketing, grit, and management that can be used in every job.

Here is how it works:
You’ll gather 2-4 students to make a team. After you receive your instructions, we’ll give you the backbones to a business model. Then, your team goes out and markets, sells, and operates the business.

We provide food and a space to work. Mentorship and advice is available throughout the weekend. At the conclusion of the event, we’ll have a retrospective and results.

You keep 75% of the profit your pop-up shoppe makes. You set your hours. You control how much you learn. Work as long as you want, choose your own hours.
