From July 9-20, Future Founders hosted our annual “Be Your Own Boss” Summer Entrepreneurship Camp to teach CPS high school students all the skills they need to create and pitch their own business ideas to investors. During the camp, students developed entrepreneurial skills, explored the Chicago entrepreneurial ecosystem, created mobile app concepts, and most importantly, had fun!
We also awarded $15,000 in college scholarships thanks to the generous support of the Ford Motor Company Fund.
Congratulations to the future founders who created scholarship winning apps:
Huge thanks to all of the “investors” who listened to student pitches and provided meaningful feedback:
Thanks to all of the people who made the camp such a transformative experience for our students. A special shoutout to LEAP Innovations and 1871 for being so welcoming to our students and for hosting all camp activities!
Look forward to inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurs with you!
