“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels ... the ones who see things differently.
You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or villify them, but the one thing you can’t do is ignore them, 
because they change things… because the ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."
-Steve Jobs

Our students love our programs


Banting Memorial High School

"Before the Hero program, I had a hard time deciding the life I wanted to live. Throughout the program I learned how to create balance in every aspect of my life. I learned about building a business, but also about making an impact while creating a beautiful lifestyle for myself as well. I now have an incredible vision of how to create the life that I want."


Applied Sciences, Freiburg

"Before Heroes of Purpose, I was trying to figure out what I would do after school. The Hero program changed my life. I was able to structure my business and build on my personal development. During the Hero program, I onboarded my first clients, started teaching my first workshops, built my website, and created a huge amount of energy moving forward."



"Before the Hero program, I didn't understand the connection between entrepreneurship & personal development. Beyond building a business, Heroes of Purpose taught me to transform my emotions in an incredible way. I feel like I know myself at a far deeper level. This experience was invaluable to me as an aspiring entrepreneur."


If I'm not currently in college or didn't go to college, can I still apply?
Yes! We believe in accepting applicants from all backgrounds. All you need is the drive to make an impact and persevere through challenges.. Our successful students have ranged everywhere from high school graduates to Ph.D students at top research universities. 
Can I still do the program if I have an internship this summer? 
Yes! We host our live Zoom calls in the evenings every weekday, so you can work during the day and join your community at night. 

Can I still do the program if I'm waiting to hear back from my internship? 
Yes! The program is 10 hours a week, which can be done at the same time as a remote summer internship. 

Do I have to have experience in entrepreneurship?
Not at all! You do not need entrepreneurial experience to attend Hero Experience. We believe diversity in experience, no matter your major, is what creates our rich community. 

Is this program completely online? Is it safe with COVID-19?
Absolutely to both! Because the form of entrepreneurship we teach enables you to create a project digitally, it makes you far more prepared for the world of remote work. 

Can I bring a team of my friends with me to attend Hero Experience?
Yes! If you have friends you'd like to work with, you may all apply and be a part of the same team.
