Please join us on Wednesday, September 21st at 7pm for the first NestED talk of the year by Joshua Caleb Collins, the founder and CEO of Catapult Ideas. Catapult helps develop the world’s most promising young entrepreneurs by running a startup incubator for high school students. Over the course of 3 months, students get an unprecedented, immersive entrepreneurial experience with four-day intensives that take them to a variety of cities. Between sessions, the ventures are refined and iterated on with the guidance of advisors. The incubator culminates in a Demo Day where founders pitch to judges in the hopes of gaining valuable feedback, new mentors, and prospective seed-level investments.
Collins started his first company in college and has worked with global nonprofits over the past 10 years to help young entrepreneurs take action and create impact. Prior to starting Catapult, he served as an Entrepreneur-in-Residence for Ashoka’s Youth Venture, a global organization that promotes a global culture of youth initiated positive change. Josh earned his bachelor’s degree from Westmont College where he graduated cum laude with three degrees in economics and business, communication studies, and social science.
