Testimonials

Tony Hsieh, CEO at Zappos

"When I first met some of their graduates from their Toronto program, I was immediately taken with how passionate, curious and thoughtful they were for such a young age. It’s not often that we get to help offer an opportunity like this to our community, so when we had the chance to be a part of their local operation, it was important for us to get involved from day one. We were thinking about doing something like this before even finding out about TKS, and it felt like a perfect solution that just fell in our lap!"

Tobi Lutke, Founder and CEO of Shopify

"I met some TKS students at the Collision conference, and it was ridiculous how smart they were. I had a conversation on particle physics with a 13 year old, it didn't seem unusual at the time – those kids are amazing."

Piotr Mierzejewski, Director of Db2 Development for IBM Data & AI

"It only took 30 min conversation with a group of TKS students for me to feel inspired and find renewed faith in the future of our society.
What I found unique was their ability to connect advances in bleeding edge technologies to tackle hard problems our society faces on a daily basis."
