About Draper University

Draper University is an ecosystem for innovators. We are helping people do the great things they are capable of. Expect to be inspired. To do things you didn’t think were possible. To be fearless. To build a network of friends, mentors and colleagues that you will take with you on your path.

Our Residential program is an immersive program located in the heart of Silicon Valley. Students live and work at Draper University.

The program is rigorous and designed to promote creativity, innovation, leadership and teamwork. Each week consists of speakers who are all-stars in their fields, workshops and team activities, field trips, mentoring and time to work on your startup. There will be a lot of surprises along the way. Class is 7 days a week and we strongly recommend students are available for the entire program.


Draper University offers scholarships that have been generously sponsored by innovators who want to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs and disrupt education. If you are applying for a scholarship, please mention it in your application.
