Is Uprise Academy The Right Option For You?

One of the hardest things about defining your direction is that there are SO MANY options.

We therefore think it’s important for you to make sure that you should even be considering joining us. Not because we don’t want you to join but because - depending on the outcomes you’re looking for - we might be able to help to direct you to an option that better addresses your needs.

This short post outlines some of the most common motivations we see and match them to what we feel is the best solution for that person.

If your main motivation is:

  • A pay rise
  • A promotion
  • To obtain more responsibility
  • To work for a bigger company

Then you should consider an MBA program where you’ll be able to bulk out your CV with the names and logos of some recognisable institutions.

If your main motivation is:

  • To travel the world
  • To get accreditation
  • To work remotely

Then we think you should consider working remotely with someone like Remote Year or independently from an Outpost, or Selina.

If your main motivation is:

  • To make a lot of money selling a business
  • To be the next Jeff Bezos

Then we think you should consider joining a VC backed pre-accelerator where they can help you develop a viable tech product/service with the aim of selling it for profit after a short span of time.

Or, If you’ve already identified:

  • A tech scalable business idea then we recommend you talk to an accelerator
  • A very specific industry or job role then it may be worth studying a post-grad degree
  • A specific startup that you want to work for then get in touch with them first

BUT

… if your main motivations are any of the following then you’re in exactly the right place:

  • I feel stuck in my career and don’t know what direction to take
  • I have goals and ambitions but feel they’re not supported by my current community (friends, family, colleagues, etc.)
  • I want to get expert skills, coaching, and support to realise my potential
  • I see problems that I want to solve in the world but don’t know where to start
  • I want skills and coaching to help me transition into a more fulfilling career

------------

At Uprise Academy, we’ve spent the last two years asking only question when designing our programs:

what skills and mindsets do you need to create a career that’ll make you come alive again?

After running seven programs, we’ve found that there’s just three pillars that form the foundation of creating a remarkable career; owning your personal narrative, cultivating an entrepreneurial skillset, and being around the right people. And it works; we have over 170 alumni from over 30 countries creating entrepreneurial careers that make them feel alive — going from sitting in corporates to joining startups in Silicon Valley, launching plastic waste movements, becoming freelance brands and everything in between.
