Creative Entrepreneurship Summer Camp: International High School Program

Berklee College of Music,

ICE Summer Camp

Central to the Berklee Institute for Creative Entrepreneurship (ICE) philosophy about developing the startup mindset is the belief that the creative process and the entrepreneurial journey share the same DNA.

Our summer camp, which kicks off this year with students from China and Taiwan, takes young minds through the process of thinking like an entrepreneur by using music as the underlying coaching language. Ensembles are instruments for collaboration; jazz improvisation acts as a window to the nimble instincts of successful startup founders; the recording process acts as metaphor for synthesizing disparate parts into a comprehensive unit; and songwriting is used as a means of introducing the iterative and cocreation processes that all ideas and products undergo, from conception to market.

This program is cross-cultural by design, and it blends the principles of play, passion, and purpose to develop the mindset required for young innovators. The week-long summer camp features daily hands-on activities; visits to Boston-area innovation institutions and organizations; seminars with world-renowned music professionals; and coaching by entrepreneurs, innovators, and educators from the worlds of technology, business, and art.
