Preparing for an Ever-Changing World

We know that you want your child to thrive in all environments.

QØ is here to make sure that happens.

QØ provides far more than entrepreneurship. We introduce students to the importance of failure while teaching them how to pick themselves back up, learn from their mistakes, and apply their new knowledge. By gaining real-world experience, students develop soft skills such as teamwork, public speaking, leadership, and creative problem solving - all which are transferable to college, the business world, and professional relationships. The QØ ecosystem also connects your student with a lifelong network of influencers, shakers, and movers.

Parent Programming

(Catapult Incubator Only)

QØ recognizes that a young entrepreneur also needs a strong support system at home. We provide a full day parent workshop during the Catapult Incubator, and more, to equip you with the tools and mindset to best help your child.

Full Day Parent Workshop the first Catapult weekend

Understand the QØ experience more completely and have access to the latest research on skills young people need to thrive in an ever-changing world.  At no additional cost, this workshop takes place during the Silicon Valley portion (exact date and time TBA). All parents are encouraged to attend the Parent Workshop.  The workshop is an interactive and experiential day where you will:

  • Walk in the shoes of your young entrepreneur to better understand the journey and how you can support it (enlightening even if you are an entrepreneur yourself!)
  • Discuss the research of developing an entrepreneurial mindset and why it is essential for your child to master these skills in a world where change is the only constant
  • Develop tools to relate to and support your young entrepreneur
  • Build a community of like-minded individuals to create and model new parenting practices

Parent Communication Channel

QØ provides a complimentary communication channel for parents in each cohort to chat with one another. This is a strong resource to exchange ideas, coordinate travel plans, and ask questions.

Parent Newsletters

Don't worry if your child isn't sharing enough with you about their day-to-day experience at QØ. We are happy to provide parent newsletters after each city to keep you in the loop on the developments, activities, venture teams, advisors, and guest speakers.

Demo Day

Each of QØ's Catapult Incubators culminates in a Demo Day competition where ventures pitch to a panel of judges. Parents and families are invited to attend in New York City. Following Demo Day there will be additional opportunities to socialize with the ventures, QØ team, and fellow parents. More details to follow.
