20 years old, featured in NBC, ABC, PBS, C-SPAN and the Wall St. Journal, Josuel Plasencia is a social entrepreneur, youth advocate and community leader. Josuel brought this passion to the #1 school for entrepreneurship in the United States (US News and World Report), Babson College, where he is a student and co-founded Project 99, a startup focused on inclusive entrepreneurship, piloting its first program this August in the Dominican Republic. Josuel is also a public speaker (Gotham Hall, The Museum of Finance, Rooftop at Tribeca and Cipriani Wall Street), focusing on the impact non-profit programs have on a young person’s life, such as Junior Achievement, Virtual Enterprises International, and the National Academy Foundation had in him.
Being raised by a single mother, in a family where he is the first high school graduate is representation of what has fueled much of his life's desires. With distinguished honors like being selected Junior Achievement Student of the Year and Mentee of the Year in New York City (even ringing the bell at the New York Stock Exchange), Josuel accredits his entrepreneurial experience as being instrumental in unlocking his potential. Josuel has previously interned with the KPMG United Nations Desk, Ernst & Young, BNY Mellon and the National Minority Business Council. During the summer of 2015, he will intern with Goldman Sach's Private Wealth Management division. This fall he will participate in the Babson BRIC: Cornerstone of a Global Economy Program, where he will study abroad in China, Russia and India during his first semester as junior.
