Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you offer financial aid?

    We believe that personal finances should not inhibit ambitious students from participating in Youth Entrepreneurship Accelerator. Students who are accepted to Youth Entrepreneurship Accelerator are eligible to receive financial aid on a case-by-case basis. Financial aid can range from 20%-75% of the total program fees. If you require financial assistance, please apply, and in your application select “yes” for financial assistance.

  • Do I need to have any prerequisite knowledge or coding skills before applying to Youth Entrepreneurship Accelerator?

    No, you do not require any prior knowledge about technologies or coding. Many of our students get exposed to these areas for the first time in Youth Entrepreneurship Accelerator. However, you should be curious, driven, and want to create an impact.

  • What age should I be to apply?

    The typical age range of Youth Entrepreneurship Accelerator students are between 13 - 17 years old (grade 8-12). Students can apply when they are 12 years old, turning 13. We do not accept students in university.

  • What’s the time commitment?

    There are mandatory 3-hour sessions once per week. Usually these sessions are on the weekend. You are required to attend these sessions. We do not provide homework, however, students who grow the most in our program invest time outside of the sessions into the projects they create while in Youth Entrepreneurship Accelerator. Typically, this is usually 2-5 hours each week, but it depends on the student. The more time students spend working on their research outside of the program, the more they benefit from it. There is also the opportunity to attend conferences, workshops and exclusive events through Youth Entrepreneurship Accelerator , which happen outside of the sessions.

  • What happens in the sessions?

    There are two types of sessions: you’ll either be learning, or you’ll be doing. Within a “learning” session, your learning the fundamentals of being an innovative entrepreneur. During a “do” session, you’ll be building and launching a real startup in the form of an App.

  • How can I get an internship through Youth Entrepreneurship Accelerator?

    Youth Entrepreneurship Accelerator has partnerships with companies that have provided internship opportunities to students. During Youth Entrepreneurship Accelerator , we work with students to secure internships with leading companies like Microsoft, Deloitte, and KPMG, while also training them on how to be successful in these positions. This enables students to add tremendous value to the organizations they work with, while also maximizing their learning experience. Internships must be earned by the students and are not guaranteed.

  • What is the application process?

    There are 2 steps before being accepted into Youth Entrepreneurship Accelerator . First, you’ll need to submit an application. Then, based on your application, we may invite you for an interview, which could be in-person or over video chat. If we think you are the right fit for Youth Entrepreneurship Accelerator after your interview, we will extend an invitation for you to join the program.

  • What is the likelihood of getting accepted into Youth Entrepreneurship Accelerator ? How many people apply to the program? How many people get in?

    This program is different than many others. We don’t have a “quota” for the number of students we select. We only select students who we think can grow exponentially in our program and have a high degree of drive and curiosity. As a result, acceptance rates vary based on the number of applications and the city. Historically, the average acceptance rate has varied from 13-20%.

  • How will this help my son/daughter get into university?

    Our Professors will write a letter of recommendation for your child. In addition, we will prepare students for the real world. During the program, students work on unique projects and create a personal portfolio that can be used when applying to university. Youth Entrepreneurship Accelerator students have gone on to attend world-class universities, while others have taken a gap year to work at leading companies around the world.
