Two years ago, I became curious about learning practical ways to improve the world. After researching business schools, I decided my options were either too expensive or less than what I was looking for, so I created my own format of 12 experiences in 12 months centered around design, business, and social change. Over the course of one year, I traveled around several states and countries and worked with some of the best and brightest.
These mini-apprenticeships have given me a deeper understanding of the theory behind good business and social change, while also teaching me through practical experience the adaptability necessary to make things work in our new economy. I believe this type of experience-based education provides an invaluable learning experience, costs far less than current models, and can equip individuals to face today’s problems with an inventive spirit.
