About this event

Want to learn gateway-building, from start to finish? 

Our Incubator-organized Bootcamp is a week-long, intensive workshop for leaders of gateways who want to further develop and scale their work. Participants will engage in hands-on activities to help them articulate the value of their work to key stakeholders and to create a strong development, operations, and sustainability plan. Workshop participants will work closely with one another and, as a result, have the opportunity to network and establish relationships with people who are engaging in similar activities. There is no cost to participate in the Bootcamp. Breakfast, lunch, and some dinners will be provided. Attendees will need to pay for travel, hotel, and remaining dinners. 

Participants will learn

  • Core business strategy skills as they apply to leading an online digital presence, such as understanding stakeholder and user needs; business, operations, finance, and resource planning; and project management;
  • Technology best practices, including the principles of cybersecurity; software architecture, development practices, and tools that ensure implementation of strong software engineering methods; usability do’s and don’ts; and
  • Long-term sustainability strategies, such as alternative funding models; case studies of successful gateway efforts; licensing choices and their impact on sustainability; planning for and measuring your impact.
By the end of the workshop, participants will have developed a "pitch deck" of their sustainability strategy and identified the key action steps to get there. Participants will also build relationships with other participants engaged in creating gateways and learn about the in-depth consultations they might seek from the SGCI.
