Entrepreneurship and technology lie at the crux of society and give rise to world-change discovery and innovation. The issue is that business and technology education are not very integrated into the education system, particularly in K12 education, which puts youth in a difficult position having to learn skills, both hard and soft, once they're officially out of school. We wanted to do make the resources that are available for the entrepreneurs of today available to Generation Z, the entrepreneurs of tomorrow. We do this through an application-based approach, heavily based on helping youth learn first and then apply what they've learned. We started ProjectileX in April of 2016, working on preliminary materials for our program before incorporating in January of 2017. Since then, our programs have reached 116 schools across 12 countries, and we've done this with a board that is composed of only Generation Z'ers. Our approach consists of:
ProjectileX's programs are in 216 schools across 14 countries this fall, and in total has a student influence of over 108,000 students.
ProjectileX has raised over $370,000 from private investors and grants since January 2017.
Over $30,000 has been allocated to funding student social ventures and philanthropic initiatives internationally.
