Two BUILD Youth Business Incubators Open in Dorchester

 

On June 9th, 2015, BUILD celebrated the grand opening of two Youth Business Incubators in our Dorchester high schools – Jeremiah E. Burke High School and the Community Academy of Science and Health.  The ribbon cutting ceremony featured a student business expo where BUILD students practiced their pitches on our honored guest, Mayor Martin J. Walsh.

These incubators were made possible by a generous donation from PwC.
