Clarification on entrepreneur campsIn a Dec. 14, 2011, story about SRI International in Menlo Park, the Almanac inaccurately described SRI as running the entrepreneurial boot camps for students at the Girls Middle School, a private school in Palo Alto.
The school does run entrepreneurial boot camps, but SRI is not involved. SRI does offer innovation workshops for entrepreneurs, academics, students and executives in business and government, CEO Curt Carlson said in an email. "SRI did not develop any part of the Girls Middle School curriculum and we have not run any boot camps there."
Mr. Carlson wrote that he has visited the school and admires the boot camp program.
"I love to talk about the school because it is a beautiful example of exactly the kind of educational experience our young people need to thrive in the global innovation economy," he said. "I can only say that I wish we had developed their curriculum. It is an inspired educational innovation."
