How is the program different on each ecosystem?
The big difference is the clusters that the program has on each ecosystem. However, TrepCamp’s program curriculum is the same across all ecosystems. Never the less, the program’s content is unique due to its pre-work, the activities, the Entrepreneur in Residence, the workshops, mentors & speakers, the visits to landmark organizations, and the Demo Day.
