Whiteboard Programs are revenue-first. We emphasis sales as the basis for business and do not over-emphasis fund raising or pitch decks. We work with students to identify opportunities to turn into commercial success.
Young Entrepreneur Challenge
The Young Entrepreneur Challenge is a one week intensive boot-camp and competition designed to develop startup skills such as presentation, market validation, and budgeting. The YEC takes place multiple times a year around the world, but our flagship location is in Boston, MA, where students from around the world come each July. Students who complete the YEC have a much better chance of being accepted into the Whiteboard Incubator.
The Whiteboard Incubator is the first no-equity, no-tuition startup incubation program designed specifically for businesses owned and operated by high school students. The Incubator is a highly competitive program with no set acceptances. Some years will have multiple companies selected, some years may not have any. Accepted companies will be given office space, legal advice, marketing and sales guidance, and web development. The Incubator runs for six-weeks in Cambridge, MA.
