ENTREPRENEURSHIP

THE CHALLENGE CONFERENCE & COMPETITIONS

We partner with Pennsylvania universities to teach middle and high schools students to write business plans. Students and teachers attend our conferences and work on mock-up business plans at our partner university for a day, then return to their schools to complete and submit their business plans for prizes approximately three weeks later.  The top plans are awarded prizes for students and their teachers.  

THE PRESENTATION CHALLENGE COMPETITIONS

Our Shark-Tank-like competitions allow the best student teams from each school district to present their business ideas to a panel of local judges for Amazon gift card prizes for students and their teachers.  We hold these events throughout the state where we have sponsorship. 

STATE COMPETITIONS

Beginning in the 2018-19 school year, we will bring together the best plans from the Entrepreneurship Challenge Conferences and separately the Entrepreneurship Presentation Challenges, for opportunities to win additional state-level prizes.  More information will follow.
