The Startup Studio has been built to serve the education market as a powerful solution company interested in accomplishing their goal of bringing students real outcomes of Empowerment, Performance and Wellness.
All of this is accomplished by giving students access to the entrepreneur’s journey as the best discipline by which to allow them to experience risk and failure, two critical components often missing inside of their school experience.
The company was Founded by Gary Conroy a serial entrepreneur after he developed a program in 2014 for Windermere Preparatory School, a Nord Anglia School situated in Windermere, Florida.
Today, the company is focused on scaling its programming throughout the world and has established an office in Vietnam to help support their interest in serving the Southeast Asian market. While the company has conducted multiple workshops in the area the partnership with NISC marks The Startup Studio’s first partner school that will offer their entire three year Learn to Start Program.
“Entrepreneurship is a life skill that takes many years to develop,” said Conroy. “We have to stop telling students sensational stories about methodologies that ensure a speedy path from Startup to IPO. That is not the reality.
"Entrepreneurship is first about knowing yourself and believing that you can sustain an independent economy. It is a learn by failure discipline, and it begins with story and understanding who you are and what it is you are passionate about. The foundation of Entrepreneurship Education, therefore, needs to be about long-term mentorship and experiential learning.”
