WeLearn Academy Newsletter – June 14-18, 2021
Dear WeLearn Community:
As highlighted in the newsletter below, we were so pleased to have Antler Fund partner Markus Bruderer join our Secondary PBL this week. Antler is the leading startup pre-incubator and early-stage investor in South East Asia and has nurtured 85 startup teams and projects in the last two years in our region. Globally, they receive a huge number of applications from would-be founders (50,000) and only accept 1% into their founded program.
One of WeLearn’s top goals is that each of our Learners develop an innovative mindset. Many experts consider that in the future world of AI, humanity’s ability to be innovative is what will truly differentiate us from AI. AI can learn to be creative, calculating, precise, and rational, but it is very difficult for AI to be innovative. Innovation requires a synthesis of so many unique human characteristics. That’s why WeLearn places an innovative mindset as a top priority. Of course, an innovative mindset can only develop from a « growth mindset », which I addressed in a previous newsletter.
Please support your Learners and WeLearn by always encouraging innovative thinking! If you do, I am confident that our Learners will one day soon be able to join an Antler program in SE Asia or their home country and invent something extraordinary!
