One of MyCorporation’s partners, Roozt.com, teamed up with the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) to create an exciting opportunity for a group of 35 students in a 10th grade class at Downtown Magnets High School; The students are out to change the world through business!
Specially selected to take part in the first ever Social Venture Competition, this inspiring group of 14- and 15-year-olds are learning the fundamentals of starting their own business, through the lens of social entrepreneurship.
As part of the year-long curriculum, each student will write a business plan about their social venture, from concept statement to financial projections, and pitch their plan to a panel of experienced social entrepreneurs and investors from the Greater Los Angeles community.
The students are working on creative business plans from their unique perspectives – ones that have a positive impact on the community with a wide range of inspiring projects, including everything from channeling artistic talents of graffiti artists to eliminating abuse towards women and girls.
The winner of the competition will receive a Social Venture Launch Kit – courtesy of Roozt.com and its corporate partner, MyCorporation.com. The Launch Kit includes Free LLC or incorporation filing, TAX ID number, business consultation, customized business documents, and a free domain website. Roozt.com and MyCorporation.com created the Social Venture Launch Kit with the intent to help the Grand Prize winner eliminate the primary barriers in launching their business.
