Entrepreneurship: Cruise Ship Vs Surf Board
In teaching young people about entrepreneurship, we adopt a simple analogy. Many programs put their entrepreneurs on a cruise ship. This means, they are protected and given all the support for their first few ideas. This makes failure difficult and expensive. In this program, we put you on a surfboard. Imagine: you will need to slowly get used to the idea of a fast moving world where things change. You need to learn to ride the wave. You will fail, fail. You will learn to climb back up quickly. You will feel the joy of a small win. We will celebrate small wins. You will learn to enjoy the sun of hope on your face, the wind of change. You may fall again. This is the period where you will build test ventures. You will climb back on the board until you are able to surf confidently. This is when you will build something really meaningful. Our aim is to help you learn and enjoy the process of building the test-ventures or projects. Don’t worry about building something big yet. Learn to love the process. Enjoy solving problems. You will eventually surf like a pro! – Let’s get started!
Frequently asked questions
Every two years, new technical information doubles. This means that halfway through a four-year degree, students will already be left trailing behind the industry, even before finishing. The problem is, graduating students firmly hold the belief that their degrees qualify them for a number of different jobs, when in fact, many employers seek candidates with degrees that no one seems to provide.
We cannot change the education systems and policies, but we recognise that in today’s highly competitive global “knowledge economy,” our youth need new skills for college, careers and citizenship, as traditional school based learning increasingly becomes insufficient. Looking at our education system, we must acknowledge that schools are not moving at the same pace as the world.
Startup School Asia has a sole purpose to advance the skills of the young generation and enable them to reach their full potential by providing them with a deep dive into the area of innovation, coding and tech industry. We focus on Tech, Coding, “Problem Solving and Solution Building” and “Communication & Teamwork”. Through project based and fun filled learning of tech and entrepreneurship we aim to encourage more children to pursue education in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and follow career paths in these fields.
