A school. 

A slightly unusual school. (Business curriculum.  Silicon Valley.)

Embisivle Friend: Additive Education

hwms.coverart

We’ve lost our faith in books. 

We’ve lost faith in texts.  

May may have even lost faith in problem sets.

Learning by doing. 

Learning by interning. 

Learning by being mentored.  It’s what you demand when you’re an 8 year old entrepreneur.  

And a plasma steel cutter, just for good measure.

Embisivle Garage

hwms.coverart

Is a startup a startup if it doesn’t start up in a garage?

That’s the myth.  We start with nothing but our wits and a little empty space from our parents, or our aunt, or some unrelated person up the street.  More companies have started in a garage than you might think.

But at the same time, does it really matter?

In an effort to answer this question, Josh LaForce and the Stage Manager explore the streets of Palo Alto.
