Our Mission:

Engage and support teens in entrepreneurship. Connect students across the globe through cultural exchange.



We are committed to providing teens around the world with hands-on entrepreneurial experiences. We work with field experts and successful entrepreneurs to create a supportive, exciting, and dynamic environment for learning and experimentation.


Cultural Exchange

During our global experiences, we engage with high school-age Startup Weekend participants to create long-lasting, engaging, and educational cultural exchanges. We work with school administrators and individual families to host students and foster entrepreneurial cultural immersion.
