Is NCSSM a high school?
I think of NCSSM as a tech company masquerading as high school. The categorization of “tech” is independent of whatever the external product might be, it’s more of an assessment of the internal operations.
Casper is more of a tech company, masquerading as just another mattress provider. How fast are they evolving? What are they measuring? How are they measuring it? Those are the tells.
The product that NCSSM delivers is people. People that are ready for industry, well-versed in frameworks that help us make sense of nature. Math and science help humans bring order to chaos, a natural inclination.
When you walk into the building at 30, it feels like a research lab meets the White House. It’s just as inspiring as it was at 16. These kids take time to bake, but when they do, don’t get in their way. Compound interest is a hell of a force.
What should one do with an undervalued tech company that others don’t notice, because they think it’s a high school? I believe the answer is to invest time, capital and care.
