  • Generated more than 100 jobs
  • Had students from more than a dozen Universities & Colleges participate

“Much of higher education is simply learning a subject and writing a paper or taking a test to prove competency. When the semester ends little if any knowledge carries over to the “real world”. The Sandbox forces you to work in the real would from day 1 because it is all about your business. You learn about customer development and then practice it the very next day. The motivation is unlike anything I had ever seen. The Sandbox not only gave me the skills but office space and a network that has been invaluable to my career development”
