I want to tell you all about a fantastic educational program that is running in Western Australia called Just Start It. It teaches young people about lean startup by actually do it.
They learn to take an idea and bring it to market, pivoting to correct any wrong assumptions along the way from feedback they gain for their real products from real customers.
This year was the first year that the program ran with 11 schools taking part and some fantastic entries being created like the Beyond Bullying and Numbox applications.
Next year, Program Leader, Lainey Wesier is looking to take the program further and introduce it to more kids next year. You know in the future we can’t rely on a generation of job dependents, we want our kids to be creating the opportunities of tomorrow in the classroom. What a great life experience and a great way to kickstart life! This can only be motivational 🙂 They build something and build important life skills along the way.
But Lainey, her team and our next generation can’t do this by themselves. They need help also in the form of dollars. Yes this sort of thing just doesn’t happen out of free will – there is a lot of that already been given out. Just Start It have a crowd funding campaign underway and they are looking for your help. Visit the crowd funding site and give what you can in an investment for the future, a future that will see your sponsorship deliver benefits in so many ways for our next generation and also for yourself.
