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.

My daughter is taking the principles taught inside Base Case and Build, and applying it to real life circumstances. She can now come to her own conclusions versus Dad giving her the conclusions.

Self Mastery
We develop emotional awareness, emotional regulation, and clarity of thought and heart before we do anything else.
We forge a stronger connection between parents and kids through shared language and deeper conversation.
"If you would go fast, go alone.  If you would go far, go together" Children are the leaders of the future, so we equip them to be at their best.

Now it’s a community of hundreds of kids and parents around the world. The next generation will be ready to build, and we’d love for you to look around, get to know us, and join the movement.

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.
