Build Real Startups

Passion Projects are a way for students to put what they learn in the classroom into practice in the real-world and to tackle real-world problems.

Phase 1 | Team Building & Ideation

Through facilitated discussions, exposure to the world, it’s needs, and time focused on your values and visions, we will help you discern what you are most passionate about addressing and building.

Students who are passionate about solving the same problems will naturally gravitate to each other, but there are other factors to emphasize in team formation as well. We put a high value on the health and productivity of our teams. In a Shark-Tank style pitch, your team will seek the backing of one (or more) of our mentors. Once you have the support, you can move forward with your idea. If you don’t receive backing from a mentor, you head back to the drawing board.
