Being entrepreneurial means being a problem solver, a critical thinker, a questioner, and a creative innovator. Our community of volunteer mentors guides teams of students through the process of identifying a need and creating a product that solves a problem.

This process encourages students to be decision-makers, teaches them how to prepare for challenges and persevere through failure, enables them to recognize opportunities and, ultimately, gives them the confidence to reach goals they didn’t think they could reach.

“I’m really grateful for BUILD. I would not have become the person I am today without them and I just hope more people are able to experience the experience that BUILD offers. BUILD is a family every young entrepreneur needs.” – Cynthia Piñedo
