HIGHLIGHTS
OF THE YEAR
BOOTCAMP:09
Following on the successful launch of
Bootcamp in 2008, Bootcamp:09 was
a great success with 47 students from
across Scotland participating in the
weeklong residential programme held
at Strathclyde University.

The Bootcamp programme has


attracted significant national and
international interest. It has proven
to be a highly effective tool for
deep engagement of students and
as a catalyst for developing their
entrepreneurial talent and ideas.

The programme has been evaluated


against the EDGE (Encouraging
Dynamic Global Entrepreneurs)
programme funded by Scottish
Enterprise and Enterprisers run by
Cambridge University’s Centre for
Entrepreneurial Learning. Bootcamp
was found to have similarly positive
benefits in all areas evaluated except
two where Bootcamp had superior
outcomes.
First, was an increased desire of
participants to set up their own
business. Second, was a large increase
in the likelihood that participants would
accept the chance to join a start-up
company at some time in their career.

These kinds of shifts represent a great


difference in the development of an
entrepreneurial student ecosystem and
culture that SIE has striven for since its
inception

60 SECOND SHORTS
In April 2009, SIE ran a second year
of its national video competition:
60 Second Shorts. Students were
invited to film a minute long video clip
addressing the question ‘What could
you do to make a difference?’ They
were encouraged to film their clip in any
format and final entries included live
action, CGI, and animated films.

Students displayed a range of ideas,


when filling the brief to create an
awareness video on an issue they felt
strongly about. Themes of the shorts
included: invention, social causes, and
turning a simple idea into a winning
business. The competition invited
students to think deeply about their
beliefs and create innovation around
them. It also widened SIE’s outreach
by specifically targeting students in the
creative industries.

The winning entry was “I’m Sarah, I’m


Autistic” by Lynsey Marshall of Glasgow
School of Art. Lynsey received an
Apple MacBook and attendance to a
Fluid Eye Productions’ training course.
The runner up was “Paper Family” by

members of Fluid Eye Productions,
