Three-Week Summer Business Program
Featured in The Boston Globe – What I Did This Summer: Started A Company
Many of the world’s greatest Tech companies, including Dell, Apple, Facebook, and Microsoft were founded by kids not much older than the teens who come to our programs. The Boston Leadership Institute, one of the top-named providers of STEM programs for high-achieving teens, is the perfect place to begin your future in STEM entrepreneurship.
The Boston Leadership Institute’s STEM Entrepreneurship hands-on program covers what it takes to start a new business in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics. Students generate innovative and forward-thinking product ideas, explore viable opportunities and markets, and learn to write a sales pitch and business plan. After they master the stages of pursuing the business idea, students learn about different ways to raise capital and manage the finances of a fledgling business.
This program focuses on creating a start-up company and building a broader understanding and skillset in areas such as presentation training and industry and business analysis. Our instructor will introduce the Sunflower Model to detail the stages of building a start-up company using a core, petal, and stem analogy.
Applications are open for Summer 2023:
