“At The Startup Studio we use our powerful technology platform to place the markets right up against every program we serve”
– Anastasia Hall, Director of Education
Learn to Start is not a business course.
We use entrepreneurship as a vehicle by which to drive real and meaningful change that develops the outcomes of empowerment, performance and wellness in every student and professional we serve - a massive differentiator from traditional business and entrepreneurship programs offered in the market today.

How to Execute on Their Ideas
When I signed up for ES, I did not know what to expect. Then when I got into the class, I was immediately inspired. By completing projects and pitches, I gained confidence in my abilities. I began working on my idea for a swim trunk company during the class, and launched it on Amazon this year! So far I have made almost $2,000 in revenue and I can't wait to see what the future holds for Trunkaholic!
The LTS program brought us the opportunities to connect what we experienced in the class to our lives in the real world and build real relationships and mentorships for ourselves. That’s why I appreciate the Learn To Start program as it lets the students be the center of the classroom and build their self-awareness. It also brings students real access to failure and encourages them to take risks and build relationships as they grow.

I was part of The Startup Studio’s Entrepreneurial Studies course at Windermere Prep during my sophomore year of high school. During this time, I had the opportunity to pitch my business idea to investors as well as my peers. Being able to start my first company at 16 years old was an invaluable experience! Being in The Startup Studio was a great privilege and empowered me with the skills to move forward on my dreams and passions.
To say the Startup Studio has changed my life would be an understatement. The connections I have built, the lessons I learned, and the skills I gained, have truly taken me to the next level. The Startup Studio teaches you how to build all the real skills the traditional education system doesn’t and continuously instills the importance of doing. They provide the guidance needed, and they allow you to do it yourself. This completely changed my life.

say about Learn to Start
"To see students really being agile thinkers, to know how to pivot, to think on their feet, and to take really genuine feedback from peers and adults and know how to internalize it because they have a real intrinsic desire to be better has allowed this program to surpass any expectation I could have had."
Elise Ecoff, Group Education Director, Nord Anglia Eduction
“The Learn to Start curriculum should be considered an “absolute must offer” experience for students in both public and private secondary schools across the entire nation.”
Tom Marcy, 50 Year Leader in Education and Retired Head of Windermere Preparatory School
“I am so impressed with the level of discourse. The way students are pushed to consider different markets or different approaches. They are not only learning how to receive feedback but, more importantly, they are learning how to give it and that is a super powerful skill for them regardless of what they do in life.”
Bruce Fawcett, Head of North Broward Preparatory School
"Learn to Start students understand that “F” does not stand for failure anymore but rather stands for 'Find another way.'"
Leslie Williams, Director of High School, Windermere Preparatory School
