What is Startup School Asia?
Startup School Asia (SSA) is a venture by the Founders of StartupMalaysia.org to help young children up to the age of 17 to understand the world of technology, design thinking and entrepreneurship. At SSA we believe entrepreneurship is not just about starting a business but about starting anything including a small project. It is also about developing an entrepreneurial mindset. We run a series of weekend and school holiday programs as well as customised programs that aim to teach our young participants the art and science of venture creation using design thinking as the pedagogy and technology as a platform for their ideas.
The content of the program rests on 2 key ideas:
- Every problem is an opportunity. The bigger the problem, the bigger the opportunity;
- Entrepreneurs do a lot more with a lot less.
