2020 Summit Students

“The Startup Studio has come to the world to be a new idea in education. To accomplish this, we must give our Students, our Educational Partners, and our Global Ambassadors the opportunity to work directly with one another in a real and authentic setting. Nowhere can we accomplish this level of connectivity better than through our Virtual Summit Program.”
