What is a Moonshot? A Moonshot is an idea of a product or service that is conceived and developed at Moonshot Jr. These are mostly products and projects that are the brainchild of children and teens between the ages of 9-16 years. Wait.. what? That is pretty incredible. Join us as we speak with founder and CEO of Moonshot Jr., Alok Jain, and learn more about this incredible real world learning platform. In addition to our conversation with Alok, hear from two students who have moved through the program and and are now launching their products along with a Moonshot top advisor, Bharat Gupta.
