Social Proof and Testimonials

“At the start of this program, I had no idea how to be an entrepreneur, I merely just liked the idea of it. The book, mentor sessions, and workshops all gave me great insight and valuable information that I can use in the present and future.”

Sandra, 11th Grader

“I couldn’t believe how straightforward yet creative this curriculum was. It was amazing watching our girls come up with their own ideas and build the confidence to pursue them. I’m excited for what’s in store for them next!”

Chris P., College Advisor

“The best thing I learned through this program is the pitch deck and how to manage my finances. These are topics that aren’t normally taught in schools, so it’s amazing I have this knowledge that will definitely be useful in the future.”

Arlene, 10th Grader

“I learned a lot about turning my ideas to reality from the small baby steps, and knowing how to deal with obstacles on my entrepreneurial journey. I also learned about being a true leader who influenced other team members to strive for success together.”
