Being in the Senior Club means you are on the edge of adulthood. This is your official invitation to take huge leaps in learning - nothing will be held back because you’re under 18! Time will be spent looking at the (not at all) scary world of The Startup to prepare you to take that leap when you’re ready. We’ll meet weekly to dive into all your burning entrepreneurial ideas and questions. If you have a business idea, this is the place to share your plans and get feedback. If you don’t have a business idea yet, no problem! Every week we’ll explore all facets of startup how-tos from ideation to making your first sale. We’ll look at new businesses currently launching into the market place and evaluate them from an investment point of view. You’ll become an expert at valuation and prospect research. Challenge yourself, explore new ideas and come meet inspiring change makers from around the world.
Europe / Asia Meetup: Wednesdays at 12:00pm GMT America Meetup: Tuesdays at 2:00pm PST
Senior club is going to push you to move in the right direction when it comes to starting a company. Thinking like an entrepreneur isn’t just about starting your own business, it’s about seeing opportunities where others don’t. Innovation is a process and to be an entrepreneur in the world today takes drive and passion for finding creative solutions to big problems. You’re not only going to learn how to think “disruptively” about these problems, but how to redefine the problem to begin with.
