Bridging Communities

We connect our young entrepreneurs to a network of volunteer mentors from the business world who light a path along the way, creating access and opportunity.

Entrepreneurship means opportunity – for the students BUILD serves and for all of us through a more diverse, equitable and interconnected community.
