THE STORY:

Infuse Entrepreneurship is a program that will bring entrepreneurship opportunities to inner-city schools showing students that possibilities are endless in pursuing a charter to make the world a better place through their own ideas.

Overview
An initiation into the exciting world of business, our program gives every student the opportunity to be an entrepreneur. The program requires students to draw upon a wealth of valuable skills learned throughout their regular high school curriculum, including creativity, teamwork, critical thinking, problem solving, mathematics, written communication,
computer science, and public speaking.

Through their entrepreneurial experience, these skills are strengthened while new ground is covered; students learn a tremendous amount about business, finance, sales, marketing, manufacturing, operations and management. Simply put, the Entré Academy Program provides young people the chance to find their entrepreneurial spirit and ultimately expand
their notion of what young minds can accomplish.

Through the academy, students will have the opportunity to put their ideas into action. Our program instructors will help students navigate the waters of entrepreneurship by helping students develop simple solutions through:
1. Generating and testing ideas
2. Identifying the necessary resources
3. Writing targeted business plans
4. Developing a product
6. Launching the business
7. Coping with setbacks
8. Professionalizing the business
9. Business development and Marketing
10. Investor and venture capital pitch

The integrated approach of this model provides a set of guidelines to help students interested in pursuing entrepreneurial ventures deal with the tasks he or she will be confronted with. Attention is also paid to corporate social responsibility, entrepreneurship and the family business, regional value and the future of entrepreneurship.

The Challenge
Students will be challenged to develop a product-based business that solves a social or economic issue geared towards green or clean technology. This program allows students to see entrepreneurship as a vehicle to create, innovate, and inspire each other and the world around them.

After successful completion of the program, Entré Academy students will have the opportunity to pitch their business ideas to local venture capitalists in the academy’s annual Symposium of Ideas convention of over 500 guests and other local high school competitors held in the Silicon Valley.
