Teachers

Learn to start a successful business from those who have actually built them to the tune of $4.5 billion.

When Acton teachers step onto campus each day, they come from the real world. From the shop floor. From the sales room. From long nights juggling customer needs and operational complexities and wrestling with the same questions Acton students are asking themselves every day. This is entrepreneurship education by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs.

These aren’t theory-driven academics. They’re real, successful entrepreneurs who’ve started small and, through trial and error and perseverance, have grown their businesses—up to $4.5 billion in assets and counting.

But talk doesn’t mean much. We’ll let their actions tell the story.

Are you as committed to your success as we are?

Our teachers care deeply about what they do. That’s no pleasant phrase; our teachers tell us that—outside of their families—the Acton students are their number-one priority. Every day, they bring their all to the classroom.

Do you take your success seriously? Because they do. So much so, they’ve put their own success on the line for it.

Why do they teach? Because they get as much back as they put in. They learn and relearn the fundamentals of business in the process. They know their success depended on teachers and mentors that invested in them. They know the power and fulfillment of seeing students turned entrepreneurs come back five, ten, fifteen years later, living successful and satisfied lives. Entrepreneurship is their passion; they wouldn’t be doing anything else.

Are you ready for the entrepreneur education many can only dream of, taught by people who have been there time and time again?
