PUBLIC (FREE) EVENT – On Saturday, June 14th, teenagers are welcome to come out to the Nussbaum Center for Entrepreneurship from 1-3:30pm to take part in ReBuildUp’s Jobs Course where they’ll play Economy, Jr., an Economic Literacy game, and Pitch Drill, a fast paced business plan and pitching contest.


By completing both games, players will be eligible to enter their own business concepts to the Cashless Incubator for review by area businesses in hopes of landing internships, jobs, or resources for their startup idea.  Participants of the Jobs Course will not have to pay the minimal signup fee to enter the Cashless Incubator for six months thanks to a generous donation by Summit Credit Union.

Summit Credit Union is sponsoring the event with Shift, the Nussbaum Center’s startup group, providing assistance.

ICON-Tab-Business-Signup-155For business owners, consider taking part by listing any available internships, jobs, or resources you’re willing to barter in exchange for skills.  This will provide the newly economically literate graduates of ReBuildUp’s Jobs Course opportunities to apply for to further their futures.  Sign up by Clicking Here.
