Startup Corps helps teens learn to create value for themselves, others and the world through entrepreneurship.
Startup Corps was created to provide curriculum, workshops, mentorship, and micro-capital for high school students in Philadelphia who wish to launch micro-ventures .
Since 2009, over 200 students have worked with Startup Corps to launch for-profit ventures, non-profit social enterprises, school clubs, and movements of like-minded individuals. Music labels, neighborhood clean-up projects, a restaurant, and software development companies are just some of the student led initiatives that have resulted. While each outcome is unique, most students learn that nurturing an idea from a concept to reality is hard work, but achievable if you are motivated and are empowered by a supportive network.
