Praxis takes place wherever the best opportunities are found across the United States.
We believe in taking advantage of the connected world we live in, freeing people from the constraints of geography, harnessing powerful entrepreneurial hubs, and challenging participants to gain the skills that can only come from moving to a new city…all at once. How? By combining both virtual and in-person experiences.
The three month professional bootcamp can be done from anywhere with an internet connection. This allows participants to engage with the Praxis material, advisors, and community from wherever they are while they build their brand and skills as we work with them to find the perfect business partner match.
When will I know if I have to move?
Participants are matched with their business partner in month two, which gives them time to prep and plan if it requires moving to a new city (which we highly recommend to get maximum value from the program!) before the apprenticeship begins in month four.
The six month startup apprenticeship takes place wherever the participant’s business partner is located. Participants live and work there, and complete the Praxis education experience simultaneously. We have a vast and growing network of startups, so participants could be in nearly any major city. We like to cluster participants in the same city whenever possible, and we have several cities like Austin, Atlanta, Phoenix, Charleston, Pittsburgh, Chicago, and Salt Lake City with a high number of participants, alumni, and business partners.
What if I can’t move?
In most cases, we can work with participants to identify a business partner in their town. Though we encourage moving to a new city to take the best opportunity, we understand cases where participants cannot move and we work to accommodate that.
What about outside the U.S.?
We do not currently have a business partner network outside of the U.S. However, this does not necessarily preclude non-U.S. citizens from the program. If you either a) have a visa to live and work in the U.S. during the apprenticeship, or b) have a business partner in your country already and want to participate in the Praxis education experience, we can work with you.
Bottom line: don’t let geography stop you!
