The Spike Lab At Stamford American School

Entrepreneurial Bootcamp For 20 Lucky Teenagers


Stamford American School HK is partnering up with “The Spike Lab” to give 20 brilliant teenagers a fantastic headstart in life through a 1-week entrepreneurship startup bootcamp. Your teenager will be taught to get into the headspace of an entrepreneur for one intensive week, culminating in the development of a design which will be pitched to professionals. The camp has limited space, with only 20 students between the ages of 13-17 being accepted.

The bootcamp will be led by the co-founder and director of “The Spike Lab” and is divided into 5 days:

Day 1: the teens will be divided into small groups in which they can brainstorm and develop an innovative idea using the Stanford Design Thinking Framework as a guide.

Day 2: the groups will use the same framework as leading Silicon Valley start-ups to evolve their concepts and evaluate their impact.

Day 3: students will be prototyping and testing their idea.

Day 4: students will be creating the minimal viable product (MVP) and receive training on how to pitch their idea.

Day 5: Final day where students get a chance to pitch their idea before an audience of peers and guests. They will receive feedback from real start-up founders and investors.

To apply, fill in the short questionnaire on the sign-up site. Don’t forget to sign up for the telephone interview, then wait for the application results to be released on June 20, 2018. Two days later, if accepted, a fee of $800hk is required to fully enroll for your teen to be on their way to becoming a young entrepreneur.

Click here to enroll, the deadline is on June 17, 2018. There are only 20 spots for the taking!
