Innovation Academy 

Middle School and High School Innovative and entrepreneurial programs

After school, Spring and Summer Camps

(SUMMER HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM - July 25th, 26th, and 27th)

Interactive & immersive workshops designed to introduce key concepts in innovative and entrepreneurial thinking and methods, Silicon Valley style and to inspire, inform, and engage young minds.


Special emphasis is placed on finding and solving human problems with experiential learning of startup companies and best practices. Students are also taught how to tell a compelling startup story about their product or service (i.e. pitch) and engage in Silicon Valley style networking.


According to the U.S. Department of Labor, 65% of today’s grade school kids will end up at a job that hasn't been invented yet.

What they say

Over the course we developed our business idea as a team and continuously refined it. We also improved our pitches to be presented to a VC. I learned so many new things

As a high schooler, Thinktomi’s Entrepreneur Playbook provided me with a real world experience on how to take an idea and make it solid enough to present in front of an investor. I would strongly recommend this course to any aspiring entrepreneurs

I enjoyed The Entrepreneur's Playbook mainly because it was a practitioner's teaching approach. You build a toolkit with a new perspective and motivation to innovate change for tomorrow.
