Happy Holidays from all of us at BizWorld.org!
As the year closes, I have been reflecting back on all of the individuals who have contributed to and supported our success in bringing innovative entrepreneurship programs into the classroom this year. You, our teachers, have been instrumental in making our programs come to life. By bringing BizWorld to your students, you are showing them a window into the world of opportunities available to them and giving them a peek at their own bright futures.
We know you have many competing priorities to balance: meeting new Common Core Standards, developing rigorous and engaging curriculums, providing STEM education, teaching 21st century skills, and more. Thank you for all your dedication to implementing our programs and for bringing the entrepreneurial mindset to elementary and middle schoolers at that critical young age.
Last week, we hosted our 11th Annual Education Riskmaster Luncheon – Celebrating Entrepreneurship and Innovation. A diverse group of children who have participated in the BizWorld programs attended the event, working in their companies to showcase their entrepreneurial talents. They did a wonderful job!
We also all listened with admiration as we heard from Leona Das, a 13-year old BizWorld alum who created her own enterprise, Tribe Awesome, a startup focused on creating cost effective, low-resource solutions to eliminating food insecurity. She is a stellar example of how creative and enterprising young minds can be and the inspiration BizWorld.org programs can provide.
We appreciate you, our biggest supporters, and thank you for continuing to engage the next generation of innovators. We know that you are inspiring your students with our empowering programs!
Wishing you all the best in 2015.
