Join us at BUILDFest NYC on June 5th for our year-end celebration!

A night celebrating a legacy of BUILDing entrepreneurial leaders and transforming communities. 

BUILDFest, our culminating event of the year, celebrates the accomplishments of student entrepreneurs from across New York City. During the course of the evening, you will get a first-hand look at how BUILD’s entrepreneurship-based program is imbuing youth with the skills they need for success in school, the workforce, and life.

Stroll through the majestic rooms of the Andrew Freedman Home, an historic landmark with a rich history in the Bronx community

Meet BUILD entrepreneurs at the Student Marketplace, where you will have a chance to learn about their companies and buy their products.

Share the excitement as the top three student teams pitch their businesses, Shark Tank—style before VIP judges. You’ll have a chance to vote for your favorite team.

Stay for dessert and conversation after the winners are announced and enjoy the tunes of DJ Whutever.

 

Witness the power of entrepreneurship on June 5th!
