BUILD’S GIVING TUESDAY 2021 CAMPAIGN

November is National Entrepreneurship Month!

BUILD envisions a world where every student, in every public high school across America, is learning to think and act like an entrepreneur.

BUILDing Gen E is a growth campaign to build a diverse new generation of entrepreneurial leaders and changemakers across America.  

We are building entrepreneurial mindset and skills for youth in communities that are underserved, overlooked, and underestimated. With a 20 year proven track record of providing an award-winning, innovative entrepreneurship program, BUILD.org is uniquely positioned to build a new generation of entrepreneurs.

Our BUILDing Gen E Campaign utilizes three pillars to bring entrepreneurship education to every school in America:

Overlooked and underestimated for far too long, this generation is ready to rewrite the narrative of who they are and what they are capable of. No longer interested in fighting the old, they are focusing all of their energy on building the new. About 41 percent plan to become entrepreneurs and almost half believe they’ll invent something that changes the world.

Whether our youth go on to join organizations or create companies of their own, we need a generation of problem solvers that are able to adapt and pivot to meet the demands of a fast-changing digital society.

BUILD is encouraging all BUILD board members, mentors, staff and community members to start their own fundraising page to support!
