Build a foundation for startup success.
Groundwork is an online startup training program designed to give you a foundation for startup success. Selected participants spend a semester getting trained, mentored, and coached on how to build a profitable money making business (not a hobby). All training is led by Student Dream’s successful network of entrepreneurs, investors, and business experts.
We’re not just focused on the basics. Turning a dream into a company starts with having the right mindset. It’s what separates the rich and the poor. Groundwork won’t teach you how to get a job. It will teach you how to make money through entrepreneurship.
Groundwork gives you a new mindset on minority wealth creation and legacy building. What does financial freedom look like to you? How about your wealth? Your legacy? Groundwork founders get the luxury of spending a semester getting inspired and motivated by the stories of experienced and aspiring entrepreneurs so that by the end of the program they’re fired up and fully prepared to to launch their business. This could be you. Apply Now.
