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.

Sessions are weekly.
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.

Expected Program Outcomes over the first 12-18 months:

Problem Solving Skills

  • Learn how to 1) identify the problems the student is passionate about and 2) actively seek out answers.
  • How to break down a large problem into smaller pieces.
  • How to think about designing and engineering solutions.

Business Skills

  • How to develop a business plan
  • Identify product-market fit
  • Develop an effective pitch
  • How to iterate on an idea using mentor feedback
  • Prototype your ideas and build MVPs (Minimal Viable Product)
  • Build your solutions and take them to market


  • How to set up an online presence through platforms like LinkedIn and/or a personal website
  • How to cold-call and cold-email experts

Advanced Goals

  • Get speaking opportunities where they can network, and grow their personal / company brand
  • Get paying customers for their business
Note: What each student gets out of the program will differ depending on their passions and level of commitment
