Since 2009, Capture Your Flag has filmed career documentary interviews with rising leaders who share lessons from their journeys to help you better plan, pursue and achieve life and career aspirations.

Capture Your Flag was founded in 2009. The Capture Your Flag philosophy is rooted in the belief that peers one to two steps ahead of you sharing their experiences enables a unique learning resource that will benefit you on your journey. We call this Near Peer Learning.

Improvisation Video Playlist from Capture Your Flag Play

Improvisation developed as a Capture Your Flag theme back in 2009 when standup comedian Matt Ruby shared how "improv" plays a role not only in comedy but also in life. We do not see the theme often but when we do the associated learning moments are valuable. Life hands you many unexpected moments and you may need to act before you can think.
