HundrED has not validated this innovation
Why did you create this innovation?
What we will work on, where we will work, and how we will work have all changed. And the education system has not responded. AT ALL. We are in a crisis. We cannot rely on the career paths that worked 15, 10 or even 5 years ago.
The system sees students as passive receptors of information rather than creative-change agents leading the world. We want to change that.
How does your innovation work in practice?
Entrepreneurs Academy is a 100-day online program that transforms a student’s passion for problems into an actual entrepreneurial project. We do this by taking young people through an online experiential journey of interpersonal learning, developing core skills like emotional intelligence, design thinking and financial literacy while building their own project.
How has it been spreading?
We have 500 paid users as of April 2021 from across 28 countries. Most of our users are 16-17 year olds.
In terms of the number of users from each part of the world, we have an equitable balance, 20% from UK; 17% from the USA & Canada; 25% from Germany, Italy, Switzerland; 15% from Middle East, 20% from South Africa, and rest from various different countries.
Typically, our most valuable customers are the students who since 8 years of age, started to dream of building a company - they have typically maintained an ideas journal, scoured through Youtube, and followed numerous Instagram influencers. For these kids SoF is a life changing experience, something that they have been actively looking for and not found. They add the most value as they help us set a high standard.
If I want to try it, what should I do?
Students go through an application process in order to join the Academy; however, anyone can come to one of the free classes we give three times a week
