Hestia is an online platform where you can take control of your own learning. Through Hestia, you can set your own Milestones, record your Learnings, unlock funds to kickstart your projects and connect with the Hestia community.
There is no timeline! Learning is a continuous journey. We are here to guide you and encourage you, but you set the pace.
We don't see any value in getting accredited. We believe that a certificate does not reflect your learnings.
The program is completely free. We want you to solely focus on upgrading yourself. We take care of the rest — thanks to the generosity of our partners.
Most entrepreneurship programs for high school students focus on lecturing and feeding you with theoretical information about startups. We want you to build and surround yourself with the people and resources you need. No BS. We try to be a signal in the noisy entrepreneurship circus. We care more about you building cool stuff and taking your first step of building real, impactful projects than you bragging about yourself to be called entrepreneur or founder or CEO; or about working on a buzzword technology that you don’t understand.
At Hestia, unlike other platforms, we don't dictate your journey for you. Hestia allows you to take control of your own self-learning journey so you can explore the topics that interest you. The Hestia community is here to guide and support you along the way, but you are the one building you're own, unique path.
