The Bates Center for Entrepreneurship and Leadership - Winterim 2021

The Bates Center’s Winterim is a fast-paced immersive week designed to develop entrepreneurial and leadership skills in a supportive and fun environment. Students participating in Winterim will be divided into groups of three or four to create, research, develop and pitch an idea. They will learn entrepreneurial and life-skills from inspirational speakers, mentors, and leaders in the for-profit and nonprofit professional community. Over 40 professionals serve as speakers, mentors and judges for our 21 students during the January 11-15 program. Winterim 2021 will have a different twist! Given the virtual format of this years’ program, L&C alumni and parents are welcome to get a glimpse of the magic of Winterim through participation in select events.
