Future Founders joined forces with Google to offer Startup Spring Break, a free week-long camp for middle school girls. The camp, which ran from April 15-19, 2019, brought together 28 aspiring female entrepreneurs from 23 Chicago Public Schools. Throughout the week, students built business concepts and mobile app prototypes, which they shared with entrepreneurs, Googlers and members of the entrepreneurial community on April 19.
During the camp, our students:
– Created app-based businesses that solved problems in everyday life.
– Built relationships with entrepreneurs in the Future Founders community.
– Pitched their businesses to investors from the Chicago community at our Google Showcase.
– Made friends with peers who, like them, want to create their own opportunity.
