Entrepreneurship in the classroom

Vertex is a serious full-time advocate of entrepreneurship. We believe entrepreneurship should be a part of public education and have developed curriculum for 6-12th graders as well as adopted the Silicon Valley start-up philosophy and methodology made famous by Steve Blank and Alexander Osterwalder.

Vertex operates a fully integrated six (6) week start-up boot camp for student entrepreneurs. We manage a scholarship fund to award (20-35) founder teams of (3-5) annually with initial seed capital, hands-on consulting, professional management, and marketing resources to both ensure early stage stability and realize exceptional long-term gains.
