Creating a Business Begins with Identifying a Problem

Your middle school students work in teams to identify a problem to solve, create a product concept, pitch the idea, and iterate based on market learnings within the e-commerce selling experience. Local volunteers from the business community mentor and support this real-world learning experience. This program differs from freshINCedu in the tools and lessons provided.  Students take on more complex analysis and evaluation of product ideas. Through this process, students discover interest areas that can drive high school and even career pursuits.

“This curriculum met social, emotional, and academic goals. The kids grew in all those ways. And I think it's going to be a benefit going forward, since kids are dealing with all kinds of trauma around Covid. I saw my students grow socially. I saw them grow emotionally. And I also saw them grow academically. Now, where else are you going to find that all bundled up into one curriculum that is structured, yet flexible, and it can be incorporated in a multitude of environments?!”

Jessica Babb, Middle School Teacher, Collier County Public Schools, FL
