Calling All Entrepreneurs! The Team Behind Mythbusters Wants You

September 11, 2015

If you're an Explo alum between the ages of 19-29 and are launching your own business or startup (one that has a physical component, such as the sunglasses above), then this is for you. Read on to find out more.

At Explo, we think that the entrepreneurial spirit is in our blood.

Helping our Students Think Big
Over the years, loads of former Explo students have gone onto become successful entrepreneurs, such as Kevin Systrom, who founded Instagram; Adam Belanich, cofounder of Joyride Coffee; and Gayatri Datar, cofounder of EarthEnable.

This past spring, we discovered that 12 Explo alums cracked the 2015 Forbes 30 under 30 list. Then this summer, CNBC took up the torch, running a feature story on the Explo Startup program.

And now, we’ve now been contacted by Beyond Productions, the team behind the smash show MythBusters. And this is where it gets exciting for you.

Explo Alum Entrepreneurs: This Could be Your Big Break
The Beyond team is looking for Explo Alums between the ages of 19-29 who are about to take the plunge and launch a business or enterprise of their own, and plan on — or have already received — financial backing from their parents.

The second main caveat is this: Each business venture must have a physical component — so no apps, please! Filming will likely begin this December or January. For more information on how to submit your business for consideration, contact Elizabeth Kanter at elizabeth_kanter@beyond.com.au.

If you make it big, be sure to let us know so we can interview you, too!
