Our goal is to develop entrepreneurial life skills as a core competency for students from kindergarten through to high school.

According to the World Economic Forum, approximately 65 percent of children entering primary school today are likely to work in careers that do not exist at the moment. The problem is twofold: we can’t predict the “hard skills” and jobs of the future and the current education system doesn’t prepare students for a rapidly changing job market and the world.

We believe they need to cultivate an entrepreneurial mindset to harness their natural imagination to build their own opportunities and tackle the problems they are passionate about solving in order for our children to succeed. It is time we got educationally inventive.

Employers and education providers lack alignment

There is a clear disparity in the viewpoints from employers and education providers over their level of job readiness students have upon graduation.

Whilst education providers clearly feel that their graduates are ready and equipped with the right tools to enter the workforce, the ground realities show a different story.
