WHEATON COLLEGE | GERMAN & ELEMENTARY EDU

XP Startup Labs C.J. Meenan pushed me and my business venture to grow during the time that we worked together. Not only is he knowledgeable in the area of helping others in their business ventures, but he is also extremely enthusiastic and passionate about it.

You want to be around him, you want to get advice from him, and you want to learn as much as you possibly can from him. This can create a domino effect that helps to bring new energy, interest, and effort to your project!

When I first started working with C.J., I just had an idea. He asked questions that challenged me and my idea, which helped to create a stronger foundation for my business venture. He helped me to define my “why” and by doing so, I was able to find new purpose in my venture. I don't think it's possible to speak highly enough of C.J.

I'm indebted to XP Startup Labs C.J. Meenan for my entrepreneurial success and accomplishments. I'm currently a Certified Entrepreneurship Instructor, 3x Young Entrepreneur of the Year and Southeastern University Entrepreneurship alumni.

Friendship is a great virtue to possess, and an even greater virtue to find in a teacher! C.J. possesses this virtue as an entrepreneurship teacher, which I personally experienced when pursuing my certification to teach entrepreneurship.

C.J. has played an instrumental part in my entrepreneurship education, serving as a director, teacher and friend in certifying me to teach entrepreneurship. You'd be happy, if you found an entrepreneurship teacher and a friend like C.J.

JOE MAHONEY
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
YOUTH ENTREPRENEURSHIP INITIATIVE

I began working with C.J. Meenan in 1992 when he was conducting the NFTE University teacher training programs at Babson College, where I worked. His 30-year dedication to the entrepreneurial ecosystem has deepened his understanding of how to train others in the skills needed to start and run a business.

The Youth Entrepreneurship Initiative of Bermuda uses XP Labs platform exclusively, allowing the implementation of customized online-blended-learning curriculum for the government schools, and our out-of-school teen entrepreneurship programs, especially valuable in moving to virtual training models due COVID restrictions. All school systems and youth development programs should look to XP Startup Labs' innovative approach to providing instructors the tools they need to bring enterprise education to youth everywhere.
