At Young Outliers, It’s like the real world in the classroom. You make friends as you learn, design, build, and start your businesses.

 

Our workshops are designed to elevate strengths and awaken passions. We connect academics with design entrepreneurship. 

 

Young Outliers courses are hands-on, in-depth, and multidisciplinary. No worksheets. No lectures.

 

Through fun and socially interactive simulations in the form of games, improv, the arts, projects, experiments, building, and designing for business and social challenges, our participants learn to connect academics to the real-world from the perspective of design entrepreneurs.
