“The Startup Studio is the essential program for students that aspire to be future Entrepreneurs and/or C-level Executives. The curriculum and instruction clearly sets expectations, allows each student the opportunity to succeed, but possibly more importantly, instills resiliency and experience in overcoming adversity. It is hard to overstate the advantage such a well-rounded head start gives you over your peers.”
