Our Youth, Our Future

Melanated Business Alliance(MBA) MotivatED Youth Entrepreneurship Program

Our youth entrepreneur program, known as “MotivatED,” is a transformative initiative designed to empower and equip the next generation of business leaders. We believe that entrepreneurship is a mindset that fosters creativity, resilience, and problem-solving skills. We provide a platform for growth, learning, and networking, as they embark on their entrepreneurial journey.

MBA MotivatED partners with Mansion of Dreams, LLC to offer a comprehensive curriculum of entrepreneurship, ideation, business planning, marketing strategies, financial literacy, and leadership development. Our experienced mentors, who are successful entrepreneurs themselves, guide participants throughout the program.

We emphasize hands-on learning and encourage the participants to develop their own business ideas. Through workshops students gain practical skills such as market research, product development, and sales techniques. Participants have the opportunity to pitch their business ideas to a panel of industry experts, gaining valuable feedback.

MotivatED also focuses on building a strong support network for young entrepreneurs. We enable participants to connect with like-minded individuals, fostering a sense of community and collaboration. The power of networking and building meaningful relationships is crucial for long-term success in the business world.

Ultimately, our goal is to instill confidence, resilience, and a passion for entrepreneurship in the young participants. We firmly believe that by providing them with the necessary skills, knowledge, and support, we can unleash their potential and pave the way for a new generation of innovative and socially-conscious business leaders. MotivatED strives to create a lasting impact on the lives of young entrepreneurs and the communities they serve.
