Launching an Impact-Driven Business

Are schools graduating the doers, makers, and cutting-edge thinkers that the world needs?

Many education thought leaders believe the key to preparing students for the future workplace is cultivating their entrepreneurial mindset – an approach that values “initiative, intelligent risk-taking, collaboration, and opportunity recognition”.

 Rather than simply identifying problems and examining the root causes, Scale is a second-year entrepreneurship course that launches the students' ventures in a scalable and impactful way. Students are empowered to implement their solutions real-time to make their communities a better place.


"Before SEED SPOT, I never would have seen myself as an entrepreneur. In fact, I didn’t even really know what an entrepreneur was. But I understand now that entrepreneurs are just regular people, like me, who actively seek out solutions to the problems in their communities.”

Josh Kaplan, Co-Founder of BrailleBoard
