Why Teach Entrepreneurship to Middle School Students

This program is a progressive, experiential journey that empowers students to drive their own learning, and embrace an iterative process of testing, learning and applying those learnings. Local business leaders contribute valuable mentorship and feedback.

Real-World Skill Development | Middle School students work in teams to identify a problem to solve, design and pitch a solution, and expose the product or service to the marketplace. Through their experience, they will develop critical skills: collaboration, communication, decision-making and more.

Flexible and Standards-based |  The program is aligned to the National Consortium of Entrepreneurship standards, Common Core Speaking and Listening, and 21st Century Learning and Innovation Skills standards.  It includes comprehensive lesson plans for at least 30-40 instructional periods, and can be adjusted to a trimester or semester course, an exploratory wheel, or an after-school program.

Tech Literacy with Marketplace |  Member schools have access to this proprietary ecommerce platform, where students learn to upload product information to a live website where real customers purchase their products. Website activity and sales data is available to guide sales and marketing decisions.

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.
