This panel is an all-youth led network revolutionizing how we train young people in entrepreneurship. The group will discuss how the principles of SI360’s model can be replicated to create a future workforce. Social Impact 360 alumni will explain the success of the peer-mentoring model. They will highlight revolutionary models of business created that allow entire populations to rise from disenfranchisement and poverty without a formal connection to a business pipeline. This model creates revenue and can scale to solve social issues. SI360’s entrepreneurship curriculum online is offered in a youth peer-to-peer mentoring structure at colleges across the United States. It was created by youth, for youth, and is used only by youth. Alumni of SI360 are 30 Top 30 Forbes social entrepreneurs and are featured in publications such as Wall Street Journal and Fast Company. Alumni are also top innovators at global companies such as Google, Tesla, and Deloitte.
