Network Capital School

We help students build their category of one
Admission on rolling basis | Classes every week for one hour.
Most schools around the world are designed like factories. They follow the assembly line model and train students for taking tests, following rules without questioning and competing for meaningless goals.

At the Network Capital School, our mission is to help all students between the ages of 8 to 18 build their category of one. We do this through - 
Critical Thinking
The Network Capital school curriculum is designed to help students follow their curiosity (instead of passion) and train them to learn across disciplines. Magic happens at intersections of knowledge - combining math and music, physics and poetry, design and anthropology. 

While specialization is important, rushing to specialize without knowing why you are specializing in the first place can be a recipe for disaster. 
We are open to students from grade 5 through 12. 

We do not believe in examinations as a criteria for selection. Network Capital School is open for all students who are curious and ambitious. The only eligibility requirement the student must be consistent with the classes. 
Every week there will be - 
1. Office Hours for 1:1 mentoring and guidance for the students. Slots will be shared with the students and they can pick the time. 
2. A live class for 60 minutes. 

Every month there will be - 
1. Sessions lead by top 0.1 professionals
2. Learning activities and micro-experiments
It takes time to become world class at anything. Treat the NC high school as a complement to the regular school. Students will spend 2 hours a week in classes taught by the top .1% of professionals. In addition, they will spend 1 hour working on assignments. These three hours will have a transformational effect on their careers. They will not only be better prepared for college but also for the infinite game of life. 
Our vision is to spark a sense of wonder and curiosity among students so that they become learn-it-alls.

Network Capital founder Utkarsh Amitabh explains the difference between finite and infinite games in his Harvard Business Review article

While we revere competition as the ultimate performance benchmark, it deludes us into believing that opportunities are finite and we can only get ahead if we follow standardized paths, perform well on standardized tests, and ask standardized questions. In other words, competition nudges us into playing the wrong game. If competition is for losers, then what game are the winners playing and how are they achieving sustainable professional success?  

In 1986 James Carse, New York University Professor Emeritus of religion and history, wrote Finite and Infinite Games. In that book he explained that finite games are defined by known players, fixed rules, and an agreed-upon objective. Infinite games, on the other hand, are the ones where the rules are constantly evolving, and the objective is not to win in the short term but to keep playing.  
The game of work and life is infinite. There is no such thing as winning in friendship, marriage, business, and practically anything that matters. To share an example, we can’t “win” a meeting. We must strive to create mutually beneficial outcomes for all stakeholders. That is how we train ourselves to play long-term games with long-term people, an integral element of success in the 21st century.  

Network Capital School: Category of One

One of the most efficient ways for students and young professionals to escape competition and play infinite games is to build a category of one.
Venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz recently published an industry report on the future of work. One of its major takeaways is that the gig economy or the “Uber for X” model is partially making way for the passion economy, where there would be a high premium on individuality and creativity. In other words, the job market will strongly reward creative professionals who question status quo and think out of the box. 

Our mission is to make the Network Capital Summer School the most meaningful learning experience you have ever had.
