The Academy will be led by Master Certified Entrepreneurship Teacher, Scott L. Steward and successful green-tech business entrepreneurs. Students work in teams on a fundamental business case to determine the best way for a business to compete, identify capital needs to start a business and devise a plan for managing a business successfully.
Participants are provided with business cases, two days of instruction and necessary materials to assist them in the successful completion of the program. On the final day, teams give a 15-minute “investor pitch” to a panel of judges in a business plan competition setting. Tuition vouchers to Roosevelt University are awarded to the top team whose presentation is judged as having the most solid business strategy and potential for success.
The goal of the Roosevelt University Entrepreneurship Academy is to provide entrepreneurship training, innovative green technology awareness and life skills that empower young people and offer them unique opportunities and real-world experiences.
If you have any high school sophomores or juniors who you think will do well by participating in this experience, please nominate them today.
