Through the experiential learning camps, children will have the first-hand experience on how to start and operate their own business. Working in teams, students will learn and experience how to start, fund and run their own company. The decisions that the companies make are entirely student-driven. The learning camps include a sales bazaar, which every child loves. There will be multiple opportunities to learn and practice vital soft skills such as leadership, communication, teamwork, critical and logical thinking. Furthermore, their mathematics skill can be honed in real life situations.

World No. 1 Entrepreneurship Program from Silicon Valley. The program has been delivered to over 680,000 students from 100 countries since 1997. Highly recommended by schools, teachers and parents!
