Speaking the same language? We’d love for you to join us. Whether your goal is a Series A round, building a team and bootstrapping, or utilizing Kickstarter, we have a place for you. We run three programs a year, a digital health program and an open tech program and a green tech program.

...and that means impacting the next generation. Students in our intensive courses are required to volunteer, teach and run our Kids programs as a part of their involvement in the Academy. (Not only does this develop a giving mindset, but it helps them communicate things they’ve learned—an essential skill as they grow into management positions in their careers.)
Our kids classes range from Scratch and Minecraft to building websites. Find classes in a city near you.
