Admission and selection criteria

There are certain characteristics that we look for in our students. It's our way of making sure that you are meant for Leangap and we are meant for you. Don't worry we're not expecting you to have everything solved already... We're looking for the next Steve Jobs in the making.

Take a look, we might be describing you!



You are very energetic, determined to be successful, and able to deal with new or difficult situations easily. You are fearless in pursuit of your goals and dreams while being strategic in your decisions.


Problem solver

A good problem solver can adapt easily. When confronted with a situation, you take on the challenge head on and work to find the best possible solution. You are able to set your emotions aside to identify a problem and solve it. You are resourceful, and full of surprises!


Success only comes when you are working together with others. With a collaborative effort, a big job can be completed in very little time. You take a no-ego approach, because you realize that the success of the team is your success too!



You're always eager to learn. Whether you are interested in coding, design, marketing, sales, hardware, leadership, etc. you know that having these skills will make the process, and life, easier for you.

Leangap was one of the best summers of high school. I made lots of new friends and learnt how to create a business in a fun and engaging environment. I know these friends will stay for life and the lessons will help me in the future to create my own business.
