Where the most ambitious kids build out their biggest dreams

Through entrepreneurship and world-class mentors, Prequel helps middle and high school students build critical life skills not taught in school


The best way to learn anything is through ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Exposure

As kids explore different topics, careers, and opportunities for what to build, they will consume content with the purpose of finding an interest instead of memorizing figures and facts.

Real World Action

Throughout history, young people have achieved remarkable things because they started creating in the real world instead of only immersing themselves in abstract theory and textbooks.

Skills That Matter

School is about acquiring knowledge. Building a startup is about converting that knowledge into a tangible skill. By building, kids learn writing, psychology, math & finance, persuasion, critical thinking and so much more.

We take teens from potential to progress.

We believe that society underestimates what ambitious teens can achieve.

Starting now, teens can find what they're passionate about and accelerate their careers by getting hands-on experience - instead of waiting to "grow up".

Your kid is AMAZING We help them unleash their potential

What parents & students are saying

"I never thought that a 16-year-old high schooler could become an entrepreneur in a business world dominated by adults with degrees. However, at BETA Camp I acquired business and technology skills from industry professionals then co-founded SteerClear."

-Michelle, Student

"Connecting with others who are all as interested as I am in this field was one of the best feelings, especially when able to challenge my limits alongside them. "

-Cianna, Student

“My daughter loved Prequel. She's learning real-world problem solving, communication, and ideation skills that aren't honed in schools. She is emerging with newfound confidence and important skills for the future. Really impressed by the program.”

-Kayla, Parent of Emily

“My daughter went from struggling to find her place in extracurriculars to landing an internship with a global startup based in Amsterdam through Prequel connections and launching her own graphic design agency."

-Jeff, Parent of Jane

“I am extremely excited about Prequel and the challenge that this learning process represents to our kids. My son shared his TikTok content with me and I was amazed by the business ideas, the product, and all the world behind the production of this content. This is a real taste of the real world."

-Maribel, Parent of Luis

“My son learned a lot from connecting with mentors and colleagues. He is very excited in setting up a startup company with his friends. He is very engaged in BETA Camp activities and the virtual program has surpassed all my expectations of virtual programming.”

-Judy, Parent of Andy

“Prequel has been an excellent outlet for my daughter to express her creativity and work with others who share the same interests."

-Michelle, Parent of Danielle

"Prequel's exposure to incredible speakers in leadership positions of the world's greatest companies opened up a world of possibilities for me, painting a clearer picture of future roles I can now work towards."

-Sarah, Student

"At Prequel, we're constantly put in situations where we have to work with new people. We need to push each other if we want to maximize our potential."

-Aayan, Student

"I liked that at Investing Bootcamp, you don't learn by listening to a lecture, you learn by actually completing real-world case studies. This makes learning investing very fun."

-Erick, Student

“Prequel is building future leaders. As the world evolves, the work environment and job availability are going to change. Some jobs are going to be obsolete. AI is going to change the world in unprecedented ways. Who is going to succeed then? - leaders and people who are willing to take the risk and imagine. Prequel is a stepping stone towards this thought process.”

-Maya, Parent of Eric

"Prequel really opened up my mind to new opportunities I would never have been exposed to during school. It gave me confidence in myself that I can achieve anything I set my mind to."

-Zoya, Student
