The Mission

There's a huge problem with modern education.

Modern education creates memorizers, and not change makers. Change makers are necessary in order for us to deal with problems that come up in the future.

Education today doesn't focus on any of the skills that are necessary for professional success. We're caught up with forcing the teenagers of today's society to learn math or science, subjects that some of them may not be passionate about.

It was out of this observation that Teendemy was born.

Teendemy aims to bridge the gap between academic education and professional success by bringing world-class experts to teach on what they think modern education misses out on.

We're excited to do this, and we hope you will join us on this journey as well.
