Entrepreneur-in-the-Classroom

As part of the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB)'s Young Entrepreneur Foundation, Entrepreneur-in-the-Classroom (EITC) strives to increase high school students' awareness of entrepreneurship.

EITC is a three-module program, with each module building on the prior's information.

  • Module One: Basic definition and concept of entrepreneurship, as well as overview of small business environment
  • Module Two: Further examination of business formation, market research, risk evaluation
  • Module Three: Legal, financial, and networking aspects of start-ups and, finally, creating a business plan

According to NFIB, through EITC hands-on program, students will gain skills such as communication, leadership, creativity, problem solving, and organizational planning. The supplemental curriculum is easy to navigate, regardless of the instructor's background, and will introduce growing youth to an entrepreneurial mindset.
