The Saturday, April 11th, 2015 day long event at Elon University’s Downtown Greensboro campus featured undergrad college leaders from six area colleges going over issues facing Greensboro to provide their own fresh ideas. The annual Leadership Academy is part of Elon’s Leadership Fellows Program.
PRIVATE EVENT – The first ReBuildUp Course of the summer is set for Monday, June 8th at the College of Davidson and Davies Counties (DCCC). This will be part of the week long Business Cents Camp held on campus for students from three area high schools.
Today, March 1st, is ReBuildUp’s 1 Year Anniversary. In a year we’ve developed four great games played in over 37 events for over 500 participants. Thanks to all our sponsors and volunteers who’ve helped get us this far.
Our goal for the coming year is to use our Startup Program to help launch first time entrepreneurs in a way that allows them to test drive the small business experience while minimizing their risks in the process.
Help us celebrate our Year 1 Birthday by telling an aspiring entrepreneur about our site!

We are excited to announce the follow up to our successful Economic Literacy Summer Series at Greensboro Public Library with the Teen Entrepreneur Fall Series sponsored by Summit Credit Union.
Here are the events dates:
Tuesday, Nov. 18th[Postponed to February 2015]
PUBLIC (FREE) AUDIENCE EVENT
Downtown Greensboro, NC
(Players Chosen from Participants of Teen Entrepreneur Events)
This series is different in two big ways:
1) Each Teen Entrepreneur event consists of our Pitch Drill and Cashless Incubator games held back to back per event to help players learn in a fun environment the basics of developing a business plan, presenting it, developing product ideas, market testing those ideas, and how to trade their skills for resources with little or no money. The Cashless Incubator game will be using headlines from the News & Record to come up with product ideas.
2) After completing a Teen Entrepreneur event, players have the opportunity to submit their own teen business idea to compete with seven others at our November 18th PitchPocalypse contest with $300 going to the winning startup along with great prizes for 2nd and 3rd place winners. Details provided on the entry form available to players of our Teen Entrepreneur Events.
The PitchPocalypse will have judges from the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce, Summit Credit Union, and UNCG’s North Carolina Entrepreneurship Center for the November 18th event at the Greensboro Public Library Central Branch. Shift, the Nussbaum Center’s Entrepreneur Group, is helping organize each of these events.
The Cashless Incubator is a skills for resources trading game. It also teaches about contracts, market testing ideas, and investing.
The Cashless Incubator is one of the two games along with Pitch Drill that will be played at our upcoming Teen Entrepreneur Fall Series events starting Tuesday, October 7th at Greensboro Public Library branches sponsored by Summit Credit Union.
