EntreLaunch is on a mission to change the world by empowering youth to think creatively, create social impact and think outside the box. In the next 5 years, our goal is to help over 150,000 youth build a brighter future through informal learning programs, workshops and entrepreneurial education.
Our programs are designed to alleviate global youth unemployment and underemployment by offering options outside traditional career paths. Through exposure to opportunities, youth develop skills to innovate and adapt to future job markets. With 70% of jobs set to disappear in the next 2 decades, these skills are in high demand!
To further benefit our teen entrepreneurs, a microfunding program is planned for 2018.
Our education programs feature workshops and events created by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs that provide basic business skills, creative thinking, leadership training and engagement in both formal and informal settings to accomodate various learning styles.
Impact Cup is a challenge designed to spark creativity while building an Impact business within a short timeframe.
Our microloan programs will launch in 2018 providing funds to teen entrepreneurs for idea validation and startup costs.
Sharing and collaboration among entrepreneurs is vital to ensure we build a strong future. Join our Launcher directory today.
