How is Startup Dojo structured?

As students progress through the program, they earn new belts. At each belt level, students focus on learning new life and business skills (from managing a personal calendar, to learning how to do market research).

How much does it cost?

The program costs $149 / month. Our goal is to help as many talented students as possible. We understand that everyone is coming from a different financial situtation. So, we are happy to give out need-based financial aid to admitted students.

How often are sessions?

Sessions are weekly.

What is the purpose of Startup Dojo?

The 21st century will belong to those who know how to bring their own visions to life; the dreamers and the doers of the world. Unfortunately, the school system does nothing to prepare students for this reality. It trains kids to listen and comply rather than to question and invent. Startup Dojo, a supportive global ecosystem for the dreamers of the world, is bridging this gap. Through coaching sessions, meetings with Luminaries, and more, Startup Dojo gives young students the confidence to pursue their passions and develop big solutions to even bigger problems.
