With the BizWorld Foundation’s programs, teachers help their students to develop the critical thinking, leadership and teamwork skills that allow them to become financially responsible and productive members of society.
In the U.S. and abroad, BizWorld programs show children in grades 3-8 how they will benefit from entrepreneurship, instilling confidence to reach their goals, and helping them become part of the next generation of innovators. The programs and curricula apply to kids from all socioeconomic and academic backgrounds, providing children with valuable real-world experiences. The curricula are easy to teach – programs can be completed in as little as 10 hours - and offer a refreshing complement to standardized learning.
The BizWorld Foundation was founded in 1997 by venture capitalist Tim Draper, who saw a need for inspiring entrepreneurship in children. In 2003, the organization was re-launched with the addition of Catherine Hutton Markwell, CEO, with a focus on putting important curricula in the hands of educators around the world. In addition to the U.S, BizWorld programs are currently available in the Netherlands, Korea, India and Singapore.
