Exploring a startup is actually an amazing vehicle for self-discovery and we use the self-reflection and self-awareness inherent in the startup journey to allow students to explore and develop their talents and interests as well as exploring their own career potential.
We won’t advance as people or as a global community if we don’t actually DO something with the amazing ideas that sit in our brains. We worry about being wrong, and we are aiming to fix that.
We ask people to quit (not Startup Sherpas, but their idea), by getting students to try something out, make it real, listen to feedback, and then make a decision.
We believe this is critical to the future success of our teens, and the world. If we don’t make mistakes, we aren’t trying something new!
