What is a Next Gen Student?
Next Gen works to activate the entrepreneurial mindset in young people. We begin by igniting the imagination and leading students through the journey of creating and refining an original business concept. Students are guided by a certified teacher and supported by entrepreneurs and successful business mentors.
Students participate in Next Gen business plan competition series where they present their ideas to esteemed judges. Students earn recognition for the skills and concepts they are mastering, ultimately having the opportunity to earn the first-ever, industry-recognized credential to certify entrepreneurial mindsets and startup skills.
Empowering the Next Generation of Entrepreneurs Together
“Because of NextGen, I was able to kickoff my company, (Legens by Jamar). It was their curriculum and their funding that really pushed me into entrepreneurship and what I’m doing today.”
– Jamar Young
