“Catapult has been a huge difference maker in our son’s outlook, not just on his entrepreneurial aspirations, but on life as a whole.”
"My daughter has a tendency to ask “why” a lot, well past the point that her teachers can answer her questions! We’ve realized that this stemmed from her experience at Catapult. The need to question and find reason in everything she encounters has become a part of her everyday life - helping her form opinions, make deeper and more analytical connections. Catapult equipped her with the skills, mindset and mentality of an entrepreneur. At 13, I cannot think of anything more valuable."
"Catapult exposes students to realities and challenges of today’s business world, without having an adult preaching to them about these topics. They learn first-hand the importance of being accountable, pulling their own weight, and working collaboratively across time zones, at late hours, and under pressure. The students reap the benefits of their own labors and feel the pride of accomplishment of doing something in the adult world all on their own. No classroom could ever provide such an experience."
"Catapult is a life changing experience for young entrepreneurs. The ecosystem of students, advisors, partners, parents, and team is priceless. The relationships they build are meaningful. I hope my other kids can come to Catapult when in high school."
“Catapult is a unique experience that provides students with invaluable resources and teaches skills that will not only help the students become successful entrepreneurs and professionals but also equip them with the necessary tools to become true change makers in society.
“Catapult should be on the bucket list of every teenager aspiring to become an entrepreneur. My daughter has benefitted immensely and I can see the difference in her confidence, clarity of thoughts, and presentation.”
Catapult is a great organization to give your teen a head start in business, execution and life. The experience will help build a strong foundation that combines learning, teamwork, initiative, creativity, critical thinking and presentation skills. We love what Catapult has done to increase our son's confidence level and solidify his love for business and entrepreneurship.
I mostly love and appreciate that this program is respecting and empowering kids and their knowledge and their efforts in being entrepreneurial at a young age.
"On the plane home my son argued that he'd learned more in one day of Catapult than in a year of high school. The team-building bonds, the opportunity to work with such creative and inspiring advisors, and the resources available through the QØ network, and your own contacts made the experience incredibly rich. Thank you so much for identifying and supporting our young changemaker."
"This was a phenomenal program and I applaud your efforts to pull it off. I know there were hundreds of moving parts. But you brought together an amazing group of kids who achieved some real and tangible outcomes that many adults would not be capable of doing. They learned so much. Your mentor group was so impressive. Thank you so much for doing this. It was life changing for our son and we are grateful he had the good fortune to be part of it!"
