Join us on The startup school podcast for young entrepreneurs
Bill Aronson the author of The Lost Art of How to Find Things: Freedom from forgetting, shares his thoughts on the 21st century challenge and exponential change.
In this our first startup school podcast for young entrepreneurs Bill shares his insights an education that combines academic and business skills to help you, your family and community.
As a tsunami of change is coming. Over the next two decades, artificial intelligence will transform the service sector and professions in the same way that automation did to agriculture and manufacturing in the 20th century. Half of today’s jobs will disappear and new industries will spring up.
What other schools are doing?
Most schools today are preparing students perfectly for a job in 1970, despite the overwhelming evidence that a traditional education is no longer enough. You still need academic qualifications of course, but these become no more than the table stakes for entry into the market. You’ll need much more than a good degree to thrive over the duration of your career in an evolving world.
The world’s first school for teenage entrepreneurs
The Cambridge International School, based in Cambridge, England, is the first in the world to inspire, equip and nurture teenage entrepreneurs. While many business schools and universities offer courses in business and entrepreneurship, we are the first school to provide this opportunity to 16-19 year olds. You will study for a minimum of three International A levels while running your own business. To make this possible, we will train you in accelerated learning techniques including the memory training mentioned in this book.
Action based learning
The program is practical and real. You will work alone and in teams, running real businesses. You will go through the whole business cycle from generating business ideas, pitching for seed capital, to taking the company operational. Are you worried that you might fail? Success is born of failure. We expect you to fail. We want you to fail, because there is no better way to learn. Fail fast, fail often.
The school is for students who want to do well and do good. You want an education that combines academic and business skills to help you, your family and community. You want to make a difference. Your next step may be university. However, you may find that you want to continue to run your own business, be a social entrepreneur, or use your new-found entrepreneurial skills as a passport to enter the global workforce. It’s up to you.
Background on the school
The Cambridge International School has been running for ten years and is part of the International Schools Partnership with fifteen schools all over the world. This year the school is extending to provide education for students who are 17-18.
Summer school starts July 11th and goes through to August 5th. You can come for a week or two. Each week you will participate in a Google Design Sprint. On Monday you will create an idea. By Friday you will have a practical solution. You will be working with real companies like Dyson on real business issues. The cost is TL 30 a day.
What does it cost?
A good question. This year only, because the school is just starting out, you can attend the summer schools for STL 30 per day which includes meals and accommodation and collection from Heathrow if you are coming from overseas. Furthermore, we have a number of scholarship programs for students attending. The bottom line.
We are looking for students who are funny, perceptive and courageous, people who are prepared to back themselves. If that sounds like you, we will work together to find a way for you to attend.
How can I find out more?
The school is open from September 2016. However, you do not need to start then. We will be accepting students right up to the end of January to allow for other countries academic year. You can email the school principal Tom Cassidy directly to start a conversation. You can call, WhatsApp or WeChat Tom on +44 (0)7801 09 63 28 or connect on Skype by searching for tomcassidy. Either way, mention EATT magazine as your introduction.
