Future Founders is thrilled to announce that, for the first time ever, we are launching a cohort of Be Your Own Boss open to high school students across the country! This expansion represents an exciting milestone in our mission of creating a nationwide community of intentional young entrepreneurs.
Be Your Own Boss is a multi-week paid internship that gives students the opportunity to explore the startup ecosystem, network with professional entrepreneurs, and build community with peers from all different backgrounds—all while working to create and pitch their own businesses. Students also have the opportunity to double their stipends by winning the program’s culminating pitch competition.
Through the generous support of Fetch Rewards, we are excited to offer this opportunity to students from public schools across the United States.
The program will run from Tuesday, January 17 – Thursday, February 9, 2023. All sessions will take place on Zoom and run on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday each week from 5:00-7:15 PM Central Time (6:00-8:15 PM ET, 4:00-6:15 PM MT, 3:00-5:15 PM PT).
Applications are simple: interested students will complete a short Google Form and record a two-minute video introducing themselves to our team. Applications must be submitted by Friday, January 6, 2023, to be considered. To apply or learn more, visit our program page.
