There are many ways that you or your organization can help teens start real businesses and support the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders, thinkers, and creators.
We are grateful for the mentors, financial support, in-kind donations, guidance, and friendship that our corporate partners offer. They help us deliver great entrepreneurship education to teens across the Philadelphia region. In exchange, we help companies meet their community engagement and philanthropic objectives by providing them with an opportunity to invest in our nation's next generation of entrepreneurial leaders.
We develop custom partnerships based on each company's specific objectives and interest in the program. We provide opportunities for guest speaking, mentoring, volunteering, event sponsorship, and financial support. In exchange, we provide networking events, recognition at our annual pitch competition and youth entrepreneurship expo, and other PR opportunities.
Contact Becca if you would like to learn more about ways to partner with Startup Corps.
We work with over 100 entrepreneurs, investors, and business leaders to help teens start real businesses. These professionals mentor students, help them network, evaluate student pitches, and attend our annual Youth Entrepreneurship Expo. The time commitment is flexible, and we find mentor opportunities based on your interests and schedule. If you would like more information on becoming a mentor for yourself or your employer, complete our mentor interest form, and someone from the Startup Corps team will be in touch soon.
Startup Corps partners with schools and youth development organizations to provide our entrepreneurship education model as an elective or after school program. We can customize this program to address specific student interests and unique educational outcomes. Our current partners include AIM Academy, Achieving Independence Center, Berean Baptist Church, Lower Merion High School, and the City of Philadelphia's Mural Arts Program. Contact Rich if you would like to learn about a custom Startup Corps program for your school or organization.
