We’re kicking off our Fall 2015 class in a month and couldn’t be more excited about the quality of the new participants. Taylor Foreman excelled in the college classroom, but has been searching for something more meaningful as he enters professional life. Taylor is a natural self-learner and is keen on getting real-world experience, so he can learn how to apply his philosophical mindset to creating value for others as an entrepreneur.
Join Taylor and Apply to Praxis Now! Classes Now Begin Every Month.
Taylor will be working at Vital Interaction in Austin, TX, for the next ten months where he’ll have the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of creating a successful company in the medical software space while gaining valuable, transferable skills and experiences that he can take to any business.
Starting in September, Taylor will begin a series of customized personal and professional development challenges, portfolio projects, creating a personal website, and working with Praxis advisors and entrepreneurs in our network. (Click to view sample PDP from a past participant)
We asked Taylor about his decision to apply to Praxis and this is what he said:
I liked college and even graduated with a degree in Philosophy. When I discovered Praxis I dropped my graduate school applications and signed up immediately. It is a perfect program to take my training in humanities and begin to actually shape the world with it.
I always knew that I wanted to do something big and that I was not interested in being a follower or obedient to a system shoving me into a monotonous, 9 to 5 working lifestyle. My plans before Praxis were to get a graduate school degree in politics and economics in order to stave off having to get an unfulfilling job for a few more years. I am so glad that I found Praxis and thereby a way to funnel my energy into a job I am really excited and passionate about while learning in a more efficient and personalized way than school could ever offer me.
Goals for the next few years and how Praxis fits into your plan?
My goals include starting a business within the next few years. I want to be a well rounded business person and try to foster a better way of looking at business and capital. Praxis teaches subjects that I think are important for any entrepreneur to know. I aim to use Praxis as real world startup experience and to make a comprehensive business plan along the way.
Praxis is a means for me to do what I always should have been doing. I only wish I would have done it sooner.
