For better or worse, people want to get some things done through a business of their own – entrepreneurship.
Our guess is that what people, especially the next generation, want is to materialize an idea of theirs. And, they want to be affirmed for it.
According to a study by Ernst & Young in 2021:
Gen Zers surveyed are very entrepreneurially minded, coveting careers that allow them to generate original ideas and collaborate on solving global challenges.
I mean, here are some key statistics based on a study by Deloitte in 2022:
Only around half of Gen Zs (47%) and millennials (55%) feel they can comfortably pay their living expenses each month, and more than a quarter of Gen Zs (26%) and millennials (31%) are not confident they will be able to retire comfortably.
Still, we in the United States of America must admit that some of us enter entrepreneurship by choice and others of us by necessity. Sometimes, starting a business is the only way to survive when documentation and language become barriers to entry.
That’s why our mission is to enable immigrant and BIPOC youth to pursue their own version of the American Dream.
Because of their parents’ circumstances, immigrant and BIPOC youth often are limited to helping with their family business. But, they have their own dreams to pursue – some through entrepreneurship. That’s what our program is about.

Yes – we will get started soon.
