BUILD Greater Boston, in partnership with the CIC, is gathering a select group of entrepreneurs and business professionals to mentor student business teams in some of Boston’s lowest performing high schools. CIC clients were some of our most successful and creative mentors in year one, including Slava Menn whose team won first prize in our inaugural Youth Business Plan Competition on June 2.


BUILD is an exciting 4-year college success program that uses entrepreneurship to motivate disengaged students to excel academically, graduate from high school, and succeed in college. BUILD provides real-world business experience which makes school relevant and motivates learning. To help students become college-eligible, BUILD also provides tutoring, test prep, mentoring, and college planning advice. Entrepreneurship is the hook—but college is the goal. Over the past 13 years, 95% of BUILD seniors nationally have been accepted to college, with 88% accepted to 4 year colleges and universities.
