Future Leaders

Though fashioned like a business bootcamp, the value of Epic’s Future Leaders program is much greater. Each day students will be learning how to solve problems independently, effectively work with others, and gain both academic and real-world skills. Students will be tasked with coming up with a business idea or solution to a current problem, no matter how big or small. Then, students will spend the week learning how to take their idea and shape it into a product or business. On the last day, students will get a tour of a business in Manhattan, lunch, and spend the afternoon in a NYC co-working space pitching their ideas to business professionals. A lucky few will win prizes, but all students will have grown their own abilities, confidence, and imagination of what is possible.
