We prepare principled entrepreneurs
to lead extraordinary lives.
Learn how to grow a small idea into a legacy.
From start to finish, the Acton approach to educating tomorrow’s business leaders is strikingly different. First, we teach you how to become a lifelong learner and to value the right questions over the right answers. Second, we deliver the tools, skills and judgment you need to create prosperity for yourself and for the world.
Our Socratic courses teach you how to listen, analyze, make decisions and persuade peers. In the process of learning to think clearly and lead others, you adopt the skills master entrepreneurs use to make tough decisions and build successful businesses. Lastly, you will learn by failing early and failing fast, and you will win by not making the same mistakes in the outside world when real money and livelihoods are on the line.
Our program is not for the faint of heart. You’ll face challenges that require courage, grit, and a never-give-up attitude – the kind of challenges you long for (but can’t seem to find enough of).
You’ll be put to the test day and night. Once you complete the program, you’ll have already faced the brutal questions that real entrepreneurs face everyday in life and business. And you will join an elite corps of individuals—the Acton community of scholars who have mastered the habits that lead to success and who see the invisible patterns that bring strong companies to life.
In the end, if you put in the hard work, you will know how to launch, grow and harvest a successful business and join the principled entrepreneurs who are changing the world.
