Welcome to Walmart's annual Associate Incubation Bootcamp, brought to you by Store Nº8 and the Walmart People & Technology teams.
Designed to engage and ignite the innovative spirit among eligible Walmart Associates in Bentonville, iD8 will develop associates' approaches to entrepreneurial thinking and identify ideas that could have material impact on Walmart's core business.
iD8 is an in-person, 8-week program led by an experienced Entrepreneur-in-Residence (EIR) in Bentonville, AR. Participants receive coaching at weekly incubation workshops and 1:1 mentoring sessions.
Applicants accepted into the program will move through to an intensive, 3-Day Incubation Challenge. There, they will choose a team and prepare a pitch to present to our panel of judges. Selected finalists will then move on to the 8-week Bootcamp.
