ENTREPRENEURSHIP CURRICULUM—FROM PRODUCT TO PITCH

A program of the nonprofit Uncharted Learning, INCubatoredu for high school youth blends an entrepreneurship curriculum with an experiential approach to traditional business subjects. In the yearlong course, students have the opportunity to create and fully develop their own product or service. Real entrepreneurs and business experts serve as volunteer coaches and mentors guiding student teams through the processes of developing hypotheses about a business concept, testing those hypotheses, adapting, and continually learning and improving. This cycle of experimentation is combined with foundational business content, such as marketing and finance. The program includes access to materials via an online learning management system, professional development for educators, a coach/mentor recruiting framework, and quarterly webinars to support classroom teachers, as well as resources for facility design. Educators can sign up on the site to preview the program’s comprehensive resource library and access a printable sample lesson plan.

Plus: Uncharted Learning exposes younger students to the concept of entrepreneurship, as well. The organization’s freshINCedu program provides curricular materials and support for teachers to guide students in grades 4 and 5 through the process of creating and launching a business in a project-based unit of study. At the middle-school level, mxINCedu empowers students with the tools and mindset to explore what it takes to be an entrepreneur. In addition to curricular materials, the program offers access to a turnkey ecommerce platform to launch a “pop-up” marketplace where students can sell their products.
