Inspiring Youth to Become the Architects of Their Futures
Youth around the world will be prepared for bright futures that support global economic growth and vibrancy. Engaging them in entrepreneurship education will inspire and set the stage for future leaders.
Who We Are
For 20 years BizWorld.org® has been teaching elementary and middle school children across the U.S. and in 100 countries around the world how to run a business through our entrepreneurship programs. Our mission is to empower youth to become 21st-century thinkers by awakening their entrepreneurial spirit, inspiring them to become the architects of their futures, and giving them the confidence to transform their world.
The original BizWorld program began as a grassroots movement in Silicon Valley in an effort to teach students the important business skills that many of them were not being taught at home or at school. Today, BizWorld.org is the largest teacher-led entrepreneurial program in the world, having taught and inspired over 600,000 children. BizWorld.org currently offers three engaging, project-based programs: BizWorld®, BizWiz and BizMovie®. Correlated to both California State and national standards in math, economics and language arts, BizWorld.org programs bring these standards to life by adding relevancy to academics and providing students with a real-world context. All three programs are designed to be flexible and applicable in a variety of classroom settings. The curriculum materials are also reusable, so educators can teach the program year after year with negligible cost.
BizWorld.org is committed to enriching the quality of education and future prospects for under-served youth, promoting self-sufficiency, and assisting them in achieving their highest potential. According to our rigorous evaluation, over 97% of all classes that participate in our programs showed increased knowledge in business, entrepreneurship, and finance concepts. 98% of teachers surveyed agreed that the programs connect academic content to the real world. Before students reach the well documented "turning point" in middle school, we believe that we can empower them with innovative, real-world experiences. In doing so, we can disrupt the trajectory of the past and send youth in a new direction that inspires them to achieve extraordinary things!
