UpStart believes that the power of innovation knows no age limits. Our teen entrepreneurship programs empower participants to make an impact in their local community and beyond. Our interactive curriculum allows participants to experiment with social innovation and human centered design, discover their Jewish values, and create community.
PresenTense Colorado (a program of UpStart) enables Jewish teens in Greater Denver and Boulder to create a social entrepreneurship project of their own. Through our Fellowship, teens are trained in Design Thinking, receive a one-on-one mentor, and apply for up to $1,000 to bring their ideas to life. This cohort-based leadership development experience ignites creativity, community, and confidence in local Jewish teens.
