What is Teen Start-Up?

Teen Start-Up is a fun multi-day event where students aged 11-18 years are taken through the innovation development process from idea to execution. Students work together in teams to come up with an idea for a product or service that they believe provides a solution to a problem their generation will face in the future. The event concludes with the students pitching their concepts to a panel of judges.

During the camp students can access mentors, tools and technology to inspire their thinking.

The real benefit of Teen Start-Up teaches participants about the innovation process and the various tools that can be used. It doesn’t focus on any particular skill such as coding or prototype building, but rather encourages participants to present their ideas in a way that works for them. They really are learning while having fun.

What makes Teen Start-Up unique is that the concept sits at the intersection of the needs of both business and education.
