The Revolutionary Silicon Valley

Entrepreneur Camp for Teens

Game Changers camp →

Game Changers Design Entrepreneur Camp helps teens (ages 13-17) explore and learn Silicon Valley entrepreneur skills and mindset so they can create a better world for their future.

The camp promotes “Dare to dream. Dare to build. Dare to fail and persevere” culture when creating their practice start-up ideas in a fun, socially interactive, and informative way. Teens shape ideas into solutions and build prototypes by applying Design Thinking methodology. They formulate start-up pitch deck by tackling the sophisticated Lean Start-Up Business Canvas through games and team activities.  

They will be mentored by senior Silicon Valley CEOs, angel investors, serial entrepreneurs, and venture capitalists. Our 2015 mentors WERE founders and leaders from Uber, Guitar Hero, WPP, Yahoo, KPCB, Zazzle, Oracle, Nestle, SAP, BootUp, Sand Hill Angels, and many start-up entrepreneurs. The camp culminates with teens presenting their start-up pitches at the Dolphin Tank (similar to Shark Tank on TV).

Teens make long lasting new friends from around the world through teamwork and pitching challenges.

Meeting with so many Silicon Valley veterans as our mentors every Friday was an awesome experience. They all inspired us with tons of ideas that we could not absorb and write down fast enough. I learned so much from all the mentors
— Ron T., Senior

Getting a personal feedback of my startup idea from the creator and founder of Guitar Hero!! Are you kidding me? I have not attended any camp before with so many industry leaders as teachers.
— Kevin Z., Junior

I have not attended a summer camp like Game Changers before. The topics we learned were serious and related to our career in the real world but the entire camp was actually really fun. I learned so much in fun and engaging ways.
— Megan H., Junior

Thank you for a great experience for Anna at the Game Changers Camp. She learned a lot and really bonded closely with the other campers. She was hesitant to come to this in the beginning but then told me that she loved it and it was the first camp I sent her that she really liked.
— Nadir A., Parent

Thank you so much for coming up with such a great camp design and for taking such a good care of my daughter. She enjoyed the camp and couldn’t stop talking about the experience and also her start-up idea. She was overwhelmed by how well their idea was received by all the Dolphin Tank judges. I know her partner’s father has helped filing the patent for their idea.
— Bessie L., Parent
