IT graduates – are you ready for boot camp?
If you’re a talented IT graduate with an entrepreneurial spirit, then Wales needs you. According to the BBC news website, Welsh business tycoon, Sir Terry Matthews is recruiting for his ‘boot camp’ to encourage young graduates to develop new information technology products of the future.
The project is run by a charity foundation called Alacrity and funded by the Welsh government and business donors. The ten graduates, to be chosen from any university in the UK, will all live together for a year in order to work together more closely and share ideas.
Sir Terry explains "It provides a unique collaboration between leading higher education institutions, global technology companies and investors, enabling our brightest graduates the necessary skills and training to innovate in technology and create new businesses".
