The Interview Process:
We will reach out to applicants by August 28th regarding in-person interview invitations.
In-Person Interview: In addition to preparing for a typical interview experience, applicants who are invited to the in-person interview will be asked to prepare a 3-minute pitch for their organization. Please see page 9 of the Application FAQ document for more detailed information on preparing. The purpose of this activity is to give our selection committee a sense for your existing organization and pitch. Keep in mind that a major goal of Social Entrepreneurship Bootcamp is to help you refine and strengthen your pitch. As such, we’ll be evaluating effort and presentation as much as the quality of your pitch. In-person interviews will take place on September 5th and 6th, 2018 at CIC Miami.
Final Interview: Applicants who are invited to the final one-on-one interview will be contacted directly after in-person interviews to schedule a virtual interview on "Google Hangouts" with Radical Partners' Founder and CEO, Rebecca Fishman Lipsey. These will take place between September 7th and September 10th, 2018.
We value the time spent with our Bootcampers immensely so we want to make sure that all of our applicants are fully committed to and available for each and every workshop. Before applying, please make sure that you are available to attend every single event so that you can be sure to make the most of your experience.
