The Act will spur new business creation in underserved communities with fellowship for entrepreneurs. With a five-year investment of $368 million, talented entrepreneurs will be invited to a national competition and as a result, 320 new businesses will be created each year! BUILD has been partnering with corporations and entrepreneurs for 20 years with the goal of building self-agency and social capital for the youth that we serve. This Bill provides additional pathways for marginalized communities and we applaud our public officials for their commitment and addressing!
This legislation is supported by the Center for American Entrepreneurship, the Greater Philadelphia Chamber, the SCORE Foundation, Prosperity Now, Young Invincibles, the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship, Small Business for America’s Future, the Small Business Majority, BUILD.org, NextGen Chamber of Commerce, Engine, and the Economic Innovation Group.
The BUILD a Better You Challenge is a fun opportunity to foster community and healthy competition, boost your team’s physical and mental well-being, and share your company’s commitment to advancing racial equity & diversity. All proceeds from the challenge will go to support BUILD’s youth entrepreneurship program for teens!
