From the 8th to 19th of August, the Genius School will run a one-of-a kind camp, The Young Entrepreneur Academy, valued at USD 4,559.

We will be giving away a Free Scholarship and 15 Runner Up Prizes on the 4th of July.

Prepare your Kids for a Radically Uncertain, Digital Future

Being a parent is not easy — especially in the 21st century. There are distractions everywhere, a global competing workforce, and an educational system that doesn’t cater to the future. The current industrial-based framework is broken, preparing kids for jobs that don’t exist anymore. In the meantime, more adults are feeling despair than ever before, with high level unemployment.

To tackle this challenge, the Young Entrepreneur Academy (YEA) will deliver a personalised learning path for kids from 10 to 18 years old. For 2 weeks, they’ll get inspired by success stories, learn the latest entrepreneurial techniques, and receive advanced digital resources. This way, they’ll develop the necessary skills to grow as entrepreneurs, artists, changemakers, or leaders.

Even before the pandemic, many children were struggling with paying attention at school, as they did not feel inspired to learn. Working on a project they're passionate about, with a chance to win funds and prizes to support their brand new business, is a fun way that helps keep them motivated.

In fact, the same techniques that allow adults to ‘create a job’, instead of ‘getting a job’, are the same ones children can develop to imagine interesting projects, which they can bring to reality. A child’s future is not dependent on test scores, but on having the confidence to try new things. Instead of just focusing on end of year academic results, our system celebrates the real genius that lies in their uniqueness.

Encourage Your Child to Submit Their Best Business Idea.

Students get to work with an experienced facilitator, guiding them to tackle challenges and achieve their goals. The expert faculty will also help them set up a working business model.
