Base Case and Build gave my daughter an outside influence for interpreting the world through extraordinary leadership. This has come back to us as a family where we can have a meaningful conversation at home, which has saved us time and energy by connecting with our daughter on this level.

Base Case and Build provided an opportunity for my son to learn valuable lessons and skills, that if I'd known earlier in life, would have given me the tools to go after my own path in life with confidence.

Financial Literacy

Master the Strategies of the Financial Elite: Our Financial Literacy pillar equips your child with the secrets and strategies used by the top 1% of the wealthy. By engaging with interactive lessons and practical exercises, including the strategic Cash Flow game inspired by Robert Kiyosaki, students learn crucial money management skills, investment strategies, and the pathways to financial independence. This comprehensive curriculum prepares young learners to make savvy financial decisions, enabling them to achieve prosperity and security as they grow.

II
Emotional Intelligence

Cultivate Wisdom Beyond the Books: Emotional Intelligence is key to personal and professional success. In this pillar, children learn to understand and manage their emotions, develop empathy for others, and master effective communication and conflict resolution skills. Through tailored activities and real-life scenarios, we guide students to build resilience, self-awareness, and a positive mindset. These essential skills enable them to lead happier, more fulfilled lives while excelling in all their endeavors.

III
Legacy/Connection

Forge a Path of Meaningful Impact: The Legacy/Connection pillar focuses on deepening familial bonds and instilling lasting values. Through guided discussions and shared activities, parents and children explore their family history, discuss life lessons, and articulate future aspirations. This pillar not only strengthens the parent-child relationship but also empowers children to carry forward a legacy of knowledge, ethics, and connectedness. It's about building a foundation of character that transcends generations.

A message from the Founder, Jay Bhakta

At Base Case and Build, we help high performing parents alleviate the frustrations they feel about what is being taught in our school systems. Because most of us would agree, the school system does not prepare our kids for the real world.

Right now, parents are hoping their kids live up to what we’ve accomplished. But we what we really want is for them to stand on our shoulders and do more and accomplish more than we have.

We want to create a journey where kids can create all the things for themselves and live a successful life.

Will you be our next partner?

We seek to partner with purpose-driven individuals and companies who believe in our mission of building the next generation for real world success.
