About CapSource

CapSource is an education technology company focused on helping schools build and scale their immersive, transformative project-based experiential learning programs that integrate real companies, their business leaders, and their challenges directly into the education process for their students. Their approach is to provide schools with freemium software (CONNECT) and added services (Company Sourcing, Project Design, and Faculty Training) so they can build/maintain relationships with companies and design project-based collaborations that align course teaching goals with company goals so that everyone wins.

Their mission is to better prepare students for the professional work environment before they graduate. They believe students need more opportunities to explore careers, business models, products, and positions before beginning their careers, which is really only possible with industry collaboration. They are confident that students learn best, and can accomplish most, when they’re placed into a real business context with real projects, and real stakeholders. Their hands-on learning collaborations are low maintenance for companies, while being a very meaningful learning experience for young business professionals.
