STEM Entrepreneurship

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. Students participate in brainstorming sessions to generate ideas for improving the way that companies do business.  Students develop a plan for their own revenue-generating business or a small money-producing venture.  Students examine and analyze real-life entrepreneurial stories from film and best-seller lists using the concepts learned during lectures. They then develop a business plan and investor pitch for their own company. This program is great for teens interested in both STEM and business.

This is a competitive admissions summer research program designed for teens.

Research & Business Plan Development

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.

What I Did This Summer: Started A Company

By Brooke Jackson­ Glidden GLOBE CORRESPONDENT JUNE 10, 2016

In 2016, The Boston Globe featured us in an article. Check out the article here.

“The prestigious Boston Leadership Institute’s STEM Entrepreneurship program offers a three­ week intensive [program] at Simmons College, introducing students to leaders around the city, with speakers from companies like Vertex Pharmaceuticals and Staples. Students come from around the world, and go on to colleges like MIT and Harvard.”

“These kids, you should see where they’re going. With a background like this, with credentials like this, they really could be the next Bill Gates,” says Jane Bybee, PhD, a founding partner at BLI.
