Anastasia Hall


Director of Curriculum & Training

In 2018, Anastasia became a Startup Studio Instructor for the Entrepreneurial Studies Program in North Broward Preparatory School. It is through this pass/fail model that she has been able to create the educational experience that should exist for all students. Anastasia also joined The Startup Studio team as the Director of Curriculum and Training using her passion to bring real and sustainable change to education around the world.



Director of Marketing & Events

Amanda’s desire to change the way her classroom operated and to give students a real-world education opened the door for her to become an Entrepreneurial Studies Instructor partnered with The Startup Studio at Windermere Preparatory School.  Additionally, she gets to grow and apply her passion for branding and design (and probably a not-so-small obsession with organizing) to help continue the development of The Startup Studio’s marketing, communications, and events. Today, she is privileged to divide her time between mentoring her students and nurturing a beautiful brand that is accomplishing its mission of disrupting education and transforming student lives.
