AccelNow is running two programs including CAD camps and Co.Starters Programs. 1) The Computer Aided Design (CAD) Camps are 5-day camps for students who wish to use a computer system to design different real world objects. A CAD professional will expose students to an in-depth knowledge of specific sets of technologies used in computer-aided design and 3D printing. 2) The CO.STARTERS is a nine-week program that equips aspiring entrepreneurs with the insights, relationships, and tools needed to turn ideas into action. Now offered in Northeast Tennessee, CO.STARTERS helps participants apply the lean business modeling methods of high-growth startups to small businesses of all kinds. Each cohort consists of 10-16 entrepreneurs and is facilitated by an experienced business owner or founder.
