In October 2016, the Black upStart partnered with Capital Cause to raise money to support our effort to launch a Kidpreneur Bootcamp for 30 Black boys enrolled in Boys Institute. Each boy was enrolled in Stanton Elementary as a 3rd, 4th or 5th grader and each was eager to learn how to earn a living through starting a business.
The boys graduatred the six day bootcamp started a beverage business called "Boys II Kings Beverage." They sold 72 bottles at $3/bottle on November 19, 2016. 100% of their earning were donated to Boys Institute.
These generous Black men donated to make the Kidpreneur Bootcamp happen and we are grateful:
