Entrepreneurship

Middle & High School Ages 11-18 yrs

In-person (Mon, 4:30 - 6:00 pm)

In this course, students will develop an entrepreneurial mindset and skills they can use in everyday life. They will gain foundational skills and knowledge needed to launch a business, from recognizing a need and creatively solving a problem to developing an actionable business plan.  

The course is comprised of three modules:

  • Creative Problem-Solving module, students learn and apply Design Thinking, an innovative process for problem-solving used by both entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs to brainstorm customer-centric ideas. This process focuses on the user’s needs and experiences by creating empathy maps, problem statements, prototypes, and testing plans to validate a product or service idea. 
  • Think Like an Entrepreneur module, students explore the traits of an entrepreneurial mindset needed by both entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs when solving problems and evaluating opportunities. An entrepreneurial self-assessment supports students in identifying their strengths and setting personal and professional goals. 
  • Rapid Business Planning module, students learn how to put their product or service idea into action by creating a concise yet effective one-page business plan. This iterative approach to business planning enables students to develop, test, and validate their plans with customers while filling an unmet market need.  

Scholars will receive cumulative benefits through the exploration of creative problem-solving, the entrepreneurial mindset, and business planning.
