Thanks to all the branches of the Greensboro Public Library along with sponsor Greensboro Municipal Federal Credit for making the Economic Literacy Summer Series possible. Not to mention all the volunteers and participants. We’ll be announcing a similar event in the fall, but in the meantime, check out pictures from this June 7th to August 5th summer program:
You may recall Noah Cameron of Bow Times who took part in our ReBuildUp Jobs Course at Noble Academy in Spring 2014.
His startup was recently included in a front page article in the News & Record as part of the Triad Startup Lab.
“Noah Cameron, a rising freshman at Randolph Community College, is trying to turn his handmade wooden bow ties into a self-sustaining business. He has tweaked the design to make them easier to produce.” CLICK HERE for the full article
Way to go Noah!

“Summer is all fun and games for a teen until they realize they have no idea how to balance a checkbook. With a heated national discourse around the financial struggles of post-grads squeezed by student debt and low-income jobs, the Greensboro Public Library and Greensboro Municipal Federal Credit Union have teamed up for an Economic Literacy Summer Series.
The series consists of programs held from June 7 to August 5 designed by ReBuildUp, a company based in Greensboro that provides resources to “inspire the current and next generation of entrepreneurs about economics and business.”

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.
For 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.
If you have a teenager that can benefit from economic and entrepreneur literacy along with having an opportunity at an internship, job, or resources for their own startups through the Cashless Incubator, please come out for the event at:
Nussbaum Center for Entrepreneurship
