NXT is a high school targeted startup pre-accelerator in Routt County, CO. A startup pre-accelerator is a fixed-term, cohort-based program, that includes mentorship and educational components and culminates in a public pitch event or demo day. NXT will offer an educational program that provides the structure and resources for the students to create their own tech startup.
NXT is one of a kind opportunity for high schoolers in the Routt County area. NXT focuses specifically on tech-related products and resources. In contrast to the traditional businesses which require large amounts of startup capital – most of the time in the hundreds thousands of dollars – tech startups can do the same thing (if not more) for a fraction of the cost. This program is going to highlight those advantages to the high school audience giving them the latest knowledge of the ever changing business technology world. Most of the business concepts for 2018 are now being evolved from the technology culture for their ability to execute with very little overhead on top of scaling to millions of customers in a very short time with very little costs.
NXT’s long term goal is to see the NXT program be a full year long program that rewrites the standardization of the current education system giving students the opportunities to grow their careers now.
