About the Startup Studio

The Startup Studio was brought to life by visionary entrepreneur, Gary Conroy, whose mission is to ensure that as many people as possible can get access to the skills that will enable them to realize the power they possess to be problem identifiers and problem solvers.

The Startup Studio was brought to life by visionary entrepreneur, Gary Conroy, whose mission is to ensure that as many people as possible can get access to the skills that will enable them to realize the power they possess to be problem identifiers and problem solvers. The goal was simple yet very noble; give people a creative and hands-on experience that guides them on how to take risk and discover important value propositions that can impact the world around them while leveraging their own story. Students are given the chance to tell their stories and to use those stories to empower.

The Startup Studio helps people to discover that they can be change makers in the roles they serve everyday. They do this by using an immersive, fun and collaborative environment built around creating trust as everyone works together to explore the entrepreneur within through design thinking and startup methodology. We seek to bridge the gap in which schools are falling short in educating our children for a 21st century world by offering them the chance to look inward and discover their power to create and solve real world problems by identifying the entrepreneur that naturally exists within them. The Startup Studio offers multiple curriculums to students at the middle, high school, and the college level, as well as to corporate team members of all ages from all industries all over the world.
