Student Journey from Creation to Transaction

This program provides a way for young students to be exposed to (and empowered by) entrepreneurship. Students work in teams to develop a product, pitch their idea, and launch their business. The starting point for creation is ‘reduce, reuse, or recycle’ – which tends to inspire discussion and innovation around social good. The unit culminates in a marketplace experience where students sell their products. The classroom teachers collaborate with volunteer business professionals who mentor student teams, provide real-world context, and champion student efforts.

It Starts Here: A Progressive Entrepreneurial Journey

Students are grounded in the entrepreneurial mindset by learning the importance of failure and how to iterate.  The learning unfolds through six distinct phases of 'doing' — all supported by comprehensive curriculum, activities and hands-on learning.

How Entrepreneurship Can Future-Proof Students

More than ever, tech and innovation are reshaping how we work, live and learn. Real-world skills, or durable skills, are the enduring skills necessary for this generation as they explore, launch and build their careers, regardless of path. 

Entrepreneurship is a framework for teaching and building competency around these skills—skills like leadership, problem-solving, and communication are inherent to the entrepreneurial journey as students work on projects and solve problems they care about.
