Nice write up by Christina DesMarais in Inc Magazine about Chicago Tech Academy:
If you think the next generation of start-up founders will hail from Stanford, Harvard, or some other university cranking out MBAs, you might want to expand your thinking. There’s a 3-year-old inner-city high school in Chicago—filled mostly with poor African American youth—grooming students who know how to think, act, and speak like entrepreneurs.
Tomorrow night we’ll find our fourth freshman class and help them start an adventure that connects then to a world of opportunity. This school is only possible because of the incredible support of mentors, teachers and so many that have played a role in helping the students imagine success.
