Leap Kit launch! What’s your plan?

Friday, October 30, 2015
9:12 PM - 10:00 PM

Dear Friends,

I hope you are doing well! A group of close friends of CCC is running a Kickstarter campaign (http://kck.st/1JBZ8EI) to release a product that helps you make 2016, a leap year, awesome. We are excited to share this with you.

This product is called Leap Kit, designed alongside Standford’s d.school, to help you design and launch a “Leap Project” answering a question or assisting you in learning how to create something you’ve always wanted to make. The Leap Kit includes a field guide, journal, strategy map, coaching cards and stories from people who’ve taken leaps of their own.

We believe that everyone is on the brink of something great. If you have audacious dream or big goals in mind, but haven’t known where to begin. Check out the Leap Kit and its inspiring backstory at http://kck.st/1JBZ8EI
2016 is a leap year. What’s your plan?

Story about the Leap Year Project
“In 2012, I (Victor Saad, founder of the Experience Institute) became curious about how to create for-profit & for-purpose businesses. After researching MBA programs, he decided my options were either too expensive or not for me, so I created my own format of 12 experiences in 12 months centered around design, business, and social change. I called it the Leap Year Project. Each project pushed me to learn about the world and myself in new ways, but more importantly, the idea sparked a community of people interested in learning to risk and risking to learn. The project culminated with a book, a TEDx talk and the start of a new type of school called Experience Institute, where students design a 12-month education through three 90-day apprenticeships/projects in their field of study, coupled with mentoring and quarterly group projects. The first groups of students who've designed their education with these methods have grown professionally and personally, and have launched into their next steps with greater confidence and clarity. The Ei Leap Kit is a distillation of the approach Experience Institute students take to design learning experiences that shape their lives.”
