30 Day Entrepreneurship Challenge

The 30 Day Entrepreneurship Challenge is a program where students work to develop an innovative and feasible business idea that is ready to launch as a high school student at the 30 day mark. With the help of an assigned mentor from Entrepreneurs’ Organization (a global network of business owners whose companies do more than $1 million in annual revenues) and community members, students build entrepreneurial mindsets while developing new business ideas to solve real-world problems.  The Challenge concludes with a community event showcasing the top team from each school as they compete in a pitch competition for cash prizes and in-kind business services.  Currently the Challenge is held in St. Louis, MO. and Houston, TX. with additional markets being added for the 2015-2016 school year (TBA). The 30 Day Entrepreneurship Challenge takes place in the Spring.
