This is a fun opportunity to see our program in action, meet our teen entrepreneurs, and shop for holiday gifts from over 20 student-run businesses. You’re free to just pop in and shop or can register as a Secret Shopper Judge. Secret Shoppers will use an electronic scoring rubric to evaluate student businesses based on product, pitch, customer service, and display. Your feedback will help guide our teen entrepreneurs as they continue to improve their products and develop their confidence as business owners.

BUILD’s mission is to use entrepreneurship to ignite the potential of youth in under-resourced communities and propel them to high school, college and career success.
BUILD is dedicated to creating a more diverse future workforce by ensuring students in under-resourced communities have access to the mentorship, professional development opportunities, and funding they need to graduate high school, go to college, and launch successful careers. BUILD’s unique “Shark Tank”-style program offers students a four-year entrepreneurship experience designed to develop 21st Century Skills and motivate student engagement in school. Starting in 9th grade, BUILD students work with their peers and mentors to develop business ideas, pitch to funders for seed funding, and launch real businesses. As they journey through high school, BUILD provides students with support in navigating the college application process and the opportunity to explore college and career options, while expanding their businesses or opting into community internships.
