Mission Statement

We want to empower students to create something real in high school. We encourage them to create the change they want to see in the future by launching their own startups.

Description

We are an after-school program that encourages entrepreneurship at the high school level. This is not a business pitch competition. Our solutions solve real problems, with alumni groups ranging from AI technology to help the vision impaired to a product that catches CO2 emissions from vehicles. We run a 25 week long after-school program, running from September to April. Finalists celebrate their accomplishments by pitching their company in front of a mock board of advisers at MIT. Students are sponsored with grants in their second year of the program to encourage growth in the startups they created in year one. In addition to teaching the basis of entrepreneurship, we want to prepare students for college and the career world by helping them grow 21st century skils.
