CREATE A STARTUP. LEARN REAL-LIFE SKILLS. FIND EMPLOYMENT.

We all want the best for our students. But what can we do when more than 50% of young people will end up in jobs that don’t exist yet? 

 

Over two weeks, we’ll future-proof your students through entrepreneurship. They’ll get hands-on, build their own businesses and learn from award-winning entrepreneurs, innovators and investors.

 

They get all the personal and career development, whilst discovering their own passions. 

WHAT STUDENTS WILL LEARN

Students will:

  • Learn to work as a high-performing team
  • Practise intentional and purposeful leadership
  • Apply design thinking to harness creativity and build innovative ideas
  • Learn how to manage their finances and monetise passions through a business model canvas
  • Craft and deliver a pitch to business thought-leaders
  • Discover career pathways and essential skillsets in the impact and startup sector
  • Build strong networks with business leaders, other ambitious youth and even investors

A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY

“The opportunity was like no other, especially for young people, wanting to leave a lasting, positive impact on the world for generations to come. FutureHack really helped put everything in perspective and taught me a new approach to problem-solving when experimenting with my own business ideas that tackled real problems.”
