NIMBLE Summer Program
The National Institute for Mentoring Business Leaders & Entrepreneurs (NIMBLE) offers a highly successful, engaging, hands-on summer program for ages 14-19 led by Columbia MBA, angel investor and tech and social entrepreneur Mariette Wharton. In a focused, fun week in Mountain View, students have a phenomenal opportunity to leap from idea inception to design thinking, prototyping, business planning and presenting team concepts to investors in a pitch competition in which winning teams are eligible to access $1,000 towards business expenses and 25 hours of mentorship with experts in entrepreneurship. Leading business thinkers (CEOs and other execs) in top tech firms and entrepreneurial ventures lead students through the pitfalls, challenges and opportunities of running a startup. Infused with creativity and personal leadership lessons, improv, negotiation and mindfulness exercises, students are also empowered with life skills in problem-solving and empathy.
Limited spots available June 24-28 and July 15-19
