The entrepreneurial spirit is cultivated in our students at Wellspring. The crowdfunding sites, Kickstarter and Indiegogo, help bring creative projects to life. Kickstarter for example, serves as a platform for innovative ideas and has funded over $1.9 billion in pledges.
Kickstarter and Indiegogo are vast and ready resource for our students to learn about startups, their challenges, and funding requirements.
At Wellspring, our students are inspired to think analytically by delving into the stories and missions of these startups.
Our students in Grades 3 and up broaden their horizons in these Kickstarter and Indiegogo analysis sessions. They get to understand why certain decisions were made by these startups, what consequences these startups faced as a result of their decisions, and what alternative decisions could have been made.
As our students journey into higher grades, the entrepreneurial spirit is continuously cultivated. This upcoming year, successful business leaders will hold business and leadership sessions for our students.
As the world continues to drastically change and embrace the new normal, we believe that the entrepreneurial skills they learn at Wellspring will be a valuable asset for them in their career. The end goal is to enable them to become successful leaders with the entrepreneurial mindset in a profession of their choice and beyond.
