History

TrepCamp was founded in 2013 as part of the Mexico-U.S. Entrepreneurship and Innovation Council (MUSEIC), with the main focus of preparing aspiring entrepreneurs to acquire the right competencies as they embark on their entrepreneurial journey. The program uses a unique methodology based in the Entrepreneurial Competencies Model™, which is the methodological heart of TrepCamp.

In 2014 a pilot test was launched in which 85 people from different universities in Mexico were selected to spend 3 weeks at UC Berkeley to develop their entrepreneurial skills. The pilot program was so successful that in 2015 it was scaled to 250 people in 5 different universities in the US: Berkeley, San Jose University, San Diego State University, NYU, and Washington University.
