BizGen’s goal is to get the next generation thinking about the future. Their future, the economy they’ll create, and the world we’ll all live in. What characterizes the entrepreneurial spirit? We believe it’s a unique combination of grit, vision and intelligent risk taking. At its core it’s about the willingness to create something of value and the courage to try.
Our future depends on this next generation of entrepreneurs to create economic value, jobs, and a standard of living.
BizGen’s mission is to promote entrepreneurship in young people. We do this through competition, mentorship and support for the ideas that rise to the top. That support is both financial and in-kind to get these ideas off the ground.
