This is great! We are trying to do something similar for middle school kids in NYC in a program called MicroInterns. Check these kids out on twitter (http://twitter.com/microinterns) and on Inc : http://www.inc.com/articles/201102/george-haines-tech-compan...

It is amazing how savvy these kids are on new media stuff.

This is awesome! The SwipeGood Team will definitely participate!

Awesome! I'll be in touch later today!

This seems like a great project. I think even brief exposure to entrepreneurs and startups could make a huge difference in these kids' lives.

I think you mean to say "businesses" where you currently say "companies"; unless you intend for these kids to quit school.

As a recent high school graduate I wish we had something like this in the inner city schools of NYC.

this is really cool! after mentoring with the BUILD.org organizatin, I can only say good things about programs like these. I'd love to help but will be out of town that week! Keep up the great work.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
