MindSpark We create and facilitate transformative professional experiences with communities and industry across the globe.
While education systems across the globe strive to answer: “How do we prepare young people for the world of 2030 and beyond?” We are asking a different question: “How do we mobilize diverse ecosystems to create sustained economy through education?” Our programs and offerings are designed to answer this question. And, quite frankly, we don’t settle for anything less than excellent customized learning experiences for professionals at all the key pillars of a community: education, industry and government. When we look at the future, we see a world dependent on a dynamic workforce that has yet to emerge, and our ultimate goal is to support communities in developing this workforce. By doing so, we can ensure a sustainable economy while also mobilizing a workforce that is capable of tackling the complex problems we are sure to face when the calendar turns to 2030.
