An Introduction to Youth Entrepreneurship

With Topics in Entrepreneurship, you’re taking the first step toward introducing youth entrepreneurship to your youth.

  • 21st century skills made accessible. Critical thinking, creativity, problem solving, communication and collaboration are explicitly taught. Guided reflections after each activity deepen understanding.
  • Curriculum designed with girls in mind. Lessons emphasize real-world connections and problem-solving for a cause. Whenever possible, we use real-life examples of female entrepreneurs.
  • ESTEAM methodology. ESTEAM combines science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics under the lens of entrepreneurship and gives students the knowledge to take their learning beyond the classroom.
