There are not enough smart people working on solving important problems. This isn't a surprise. Our school system doesn't expose young people to what's happening in the real world. The world is growing at an exponential rate as advancements in areas like Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, Blockchain, Genetic Engineering, and Quantum Computing transform the way we do things. We need to focus on leveraging these new technologies to address important problems that were once thought impossible to solve. To do this, we need to expose young people to these new innovations while also helping them find their passion and purpose.
We can create more people like Elon Musk, who think big and challenge the seemingly impossible. There is a formula for developing change-makers and global leaders. Our mission at TKS is to develop the next-generation of leaders that will solve the world's most important problems. At our core, we believe that by training young people to develop a strong mindset, breadth of knowledge, and real-world skills, they will change the world.
