The BUILD Business Plan Competition is the culmination of the year of hard work by our creative 9th grade students and their dedicated mentors. Teams present their innovative business ideas in two rounds of competition. Winners receive start- up capital to launch their business.
We hope you can join us this year. All competitions begin at 12pm and conclude at 4pm.
Join us for Lunch!
Before the final round at 1pm, get to know our youth entrepreneurs, hear them pitch their business ideas and use Square to purchase student products at the Sales Bazaar.
When & Where
Founded in 1999, BUILD runs the nation's largest youth incubator with the mission to use entrepreneurship to excite and propel disengaged, low - income students through high school to college success. Our students develop their own business ideas, write business plans, pitch to funders, and launch real businesses. This real-world business experience makes school relevant and motivates them to succeed. For more information visit www.build.org.
