CORKSCREW OVER TIME
Corkscrew was launched in 2010 with a new type of internship that put more emphasis on developing creativity, communication skills and confidence through the process of entrepreneurship, the first Startup Experienceship was launched later that year. Call it fate, call it luck or divine intervention, but in September 2013 we stumbled across an article talking about how Winston Churchill’s Corkscrew Thinking approach could be used, not just to win conflict, but in business and life.
2014 marked a significant development for us as we began to understand that Corkscrew Thinking could be used for more than just preparing students for their first steps into the world of work, but could inspire businesses to think differently, spark startup ideas for career changers and retirees and for educators to develop innovative curriculum for our rapidly changing world.
In 2015 we launched our first programs outside the UK in Dublin, Berlin and Barcelona, these destinations were selected due to their innovation cultures and ability to inspire creativity and open mindedness. In 2017 we hit more than a 1000 participants joining Corkscrew across multiple destinations!
Over the last 9 years we’ve seen some amazing individuals deliver programs across multiple programs and countries, we see unique ways they inspire and develop our community, but always grounded in the core values of Corkscrew Thinking.
