Today, more than ever, finding meaningful learning opportunities for our children that can prepare them for a successful future is imperative, and BizWorld is here to help you achieve just that!

Through the collaborative, innovative, and adaptive strategies emphasized in our programs, we help students develop an array of critical skills, while they explore a variety of future career pathways.

BizWorld Connect is an after-school enrichment program, led by a BizWorld Educator, and designed to teach individual students in middle and high school how to start a business while virtually collaborating with other young entrepreneurs around the nation.

Students will acquire 21st-century skills, and apply design thinking techniques to create a business that is profitable.

Our program consists of 3 levels that will propel their entrepreneurial learning to its highest potential.
