Over the last four years the BizGen competition has impacted over 300 students from around the region. The impact of the program has been wonderful as evidenced by the work of the students and coaches, and measured by the annual impact surveys. You have all been integral parts to that success. Your work will be felt for years to come as these students grow into the world. Thank you.
In 2014 we piloted BizGen in partnership with the University of New Hampshire and Bank of America. Based on the success of that first year, BizGen and the University agreed on a 3 year memo of understanding that carried the program through 2017. Having completed that cycle, we are looking at how BizGen can significantly expand to make this opportunity available to a wider group of students nationally.
We have not come to an agreement with the University of New Hampshire for a 2018 competition and will instead use this year to plan for greater expansion in the years to come.
I invite you to continue using the BizGen curriculum in your classrooms and light the spark of excitement towards entrepreneurship in future years. If you don’t have access to these materials please drop me a note and I’ll make sure you have them.
Stay tuned for news on how we’ll scale BizGen in the future!
