Magenium Solutions Invests in the Minds of the Future


GLEN ELLYN, Ill., Sept. 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- This is not school. This is the real world! Today’s high school students are eager to become entrepreneurs… and the INCubatorEdu program at the high schools in Community Unit School District 200 in Wheaton provides that opportunity. The program was launched this fall at Wheaton Warrenville South High School and Wheaton North High School. Tim Traxinger, Managing Director of Magenium, serves on the inaugural board and personally contributed to the funding required to convert facilities into creative meeting spaces.

The INCubatorEdu program offers students an authentic entrepreneurship experience. In this program, students have the opportunity to create and fully develop their own product or service. Real entrepreneurs and business experts, including several from Magenium Slutions, serve as volunteer coaches and mentors, guiding student teams through the processes of developing hypotheses about a business concept, testing those hypotheses, adapting, and further iteration. The program also includes foundational business topics such as marketing and finance.

“Magenium has always looked for ways to be active in our community. We saw this opportunity to invest in the future of our kids and provide a valuable service to the high school. It’s an investment that we believe will have a huge impact on the lives of these kids and their success in life,” said Tim Traxinger, Managing Director. “As an IT consulting firm, Magenium Solutions knows the value of bright thinking applied to real world problems. Hopefully some of these amazing kids will come work for us someday!”

Interested students register for the course through their counselor or are recommended by teachers. The INCubatorEdu course is offered as an elective to juniors and seniors. While the program is offered in both high schools in the district – Wheaton Warrenville South High School and Wheaton North High School – coaches and mentors from Magenium Solutions will participate in the Wheaton Warrenville South program.


The environment in which the students work is inspiring and collaborative. Using the newest technology and collaboration tools in an inspiring environment, they learn to work as a team through hands-on problem solving. Over the course of two semesters, students develop a business model, gain market input on a minimum viable product, and continually revise all elements to improve the model. From concept to viable product to pitch, students learn how to test their thinking. They acquire foundational business concepts and apply them to their business idea. It’s time to stop thinking high school is too young to get started and time to start preparing them to become leaders and entrepreneurs in today’s economy and beyond.
