Take a leap

"Making something that can help other people was a humbling experience, different from anything else I experienced in high school. The creative independent atmosphere of the camp allowed me to gain new perspectives on real-world leadership that could not have been taught in a classroom."

"Not only did I leave Leangap with an actual company and a talented team of my best friends, but I also matured and picked up new skills and interests that I never would have been introduced to if it weren’t for this summer."

take a leap

"When Leangap started, I didn't know anything about entrepreneurship. I didn't even have a lemonade stand as a kid. Now, I'm working on Guap, a company I love, with a team I adore, and I'm confident that I could build a successful business."

"Leangap was by far the most exciting summer I've ever had.  This summer was special because I got to live with 50 of the coolest guys and girls around. I got to spend time with them in this amazing city while building endless relationships. I promise you, the people you'll meet will be dope."
