Young Entrepreneur Program

Program Dates: June 4th – August 3rd, 2018

Program Overview

Our program was developed to help assist high school students and gap year students to attend prestigious universities by fulfilling their need for extracurricular activities. High-performing academic students can often neglect developing extracurricular activities that will highlight their interests and future goals. Our program gives each student the opportunity to develop their own experiences and interests according to the market potential.

Our program has been developed by Ivy League graduates who have worked at the World Bank, Market Research Foundation, and other prestigious organizations across the world. Our students have been able to attend Cornell University, Columbia University, George Washington University, and the University of Oxford.

Classes allow students to learn about their own strengths and interests. This leads to an extracurricular activity that is ideal for their college majors and future goals.

The students then delve into learning about entrepreneurs who have profited through having similar ideologies. Our program instructors then match students with a mentor within their field of interest. We then develop a personalized plan for the students to quickly create a new business with the goal of immediate and realistic revenue.

Our courses cover the following essential topics:

  • New Venture Planning & Entrepreneurship
  • Financial Management
  • Effective Marketing Strategies
  • Business Strategy
Our program started during our partnership with the Small Business Administration to support entrepreneurs. One of our high-school interns inspired our founder to financially assist her in creating her own company.

Students must be between the age of 16 to 20 years of age by July 9, 2018.
