Leangap™ teaches high school students how to launch a successful startup in one summer. Students develop their ideas from concept to launch getting real customers and revenue along the way. The best way to learn is by doing, that’s why we don’t rely on simulations — students experience entrepreneurship first hand, not on power-point slides. Spend this summer with your future co-founders and customers, and build your first of many companies!
While the vast majority of entrepreneurship programs for high school students only talk about ideas and validation, we take it one step further. We believe that only by building and selling can students truly learn the core fundamentals of entrepreneurship, the authentic struggles of real-life.
Real-world actions, for real-world impact that won't go unnoticed by college admission officers, internship recruiters, scholarship applications, and more. In a time where it's getting harder to stand out with just AP exams or a high GPA, Leangap offers one of the most impactful and difficult experiences teenagers will ever have: launching a business into the real world, serving real people, solving real needs.
With resources from business leaders as well as premier institutions, Leangap helps students develop their ideas from concept to successful launch. The Leangap curriculum moves fast—it teaches market research, validation, prototyping, and fundraising while fostering essential entrepreneurial traits like resilience, hustling, public speaking, design, and sales. We believe in young people, their ideas, and their capabilities.
Leangap is their protocol for the real world.
