Entrepreneur Workshop

June 20-24, 2022 | 9 am-3 pm

This workshop is geared towards creative thinkers who want to learn how to focus their energy towards solving real-world problems. We will take talk to entrepreneurs from around the city, and learn the fundamentals of starting our own businesses. While we will keep in mind that we may have to start small, we will also learn how to dream big. The week will culminate in a "Shark Tank" style event where entrepreneurs will showcase their products and business plans to compete for "virtual" venture capital.

Instructor: Dabney Standley
Standley background includes several years of teaching at independent schools on the East coast, followed by twenty years working for high technology companies. His work with game companies began at Broderbund software (makers of Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? and Myst among many others) and concluded, before returning to teaching, at UK-based Caspian Learning. Along the way he led projects, developed corporate strategies and consulted for a number of companies including Apple, McGraw-Hill and SRI International, as well as a couple of UK-based start-up companies. Having taken twenty years to figure out how and when to return to the classroom, Standley is in his fifth year at SHC and is thrilled to be back. He teaches an introduction to programming class, economics, and AP human geography.
