We started University Startups during the pandemic to help high school students that are missing out on cancelled internships, labs and other resume building opportunities for college preparation.
We know from our teaching experience that entrepreneurial endeavors in high school can play an important role in framing student storylines for college applications. Our first course - Social Entrepreneurship, is a college level course for high school students that shows them how to start their own new venture in 2 weeks. In addition, we build in specific instruction from experts, including counselors and successful students on how to think about and plan potential pathways to highlight entrepreneurship in essays and other college application components.
We hope to help aspiring high school students achieve their goals through the highest quality educational experience - virtually.
