Startup Institute
Chicago, IL

Startup Institute is not just another school. It’s not an incubator, and it’s not a one-off skills class. It is an experience.

It is a challenge, and a process. And although it isn’t easy, it is transformative.

It begins as immersion learning with a cohort of strangers—it ends as a network of mentors, entrepreneurs, practitioners and peers that you take with you for the rest of your career.

We do this because we know that successfully scaling the human element in a startup environment is the single biggest challenge for any high-growth company.

We do this because we know that there are potential rockstars hiding in plain sight, shackled by their corporate jobs, and willing to work incredibly hard for a chance to make a real dent in the world.

We do this because we know that the best startup talent is found at the intersection of community, skills and mindset. Not simply in depth of technical ability.

But above all else, we do this because we genuinely want the world to be a more accessible and richer place in which to live, and we know that our partner companies, and the aspiring world-changers and innovators that constitute our incredible students and alumni, are the agents of that brighter tomorrow.

Programs available in Chicago, Boston, New York, Berlin and London.
