Students today aspire to solve real-life challenges facing businesses and society. They have the energy, awareness, exposure, and passion but often lack the critical skills to develop the ideas that can overcome these challenges. Their innovation, creativity, and ideas need encouragement which conventional education sometimes deprioritizes in favor of academic rigor. We as a society must encourage risk-taking, innovation, and problem-solving at very young ages as our future deserves it. The academic institutions promoting this will stand out from their peers and will participate in building a fantastic future for all of us.
That’s where the BizXL YIELD Program comes in.
As a high school student, if you have a brilliant idea you are passionate about and are seeking professional guidance, we at BizXL provide the tools to acquire skillsets and ways of thinking to help gain clarity in developing these ideas into successful business ventures.
We offer students exposure to “Think Business” and “Think Startup”!
These skills allow students and academic institutions to differentiate themselves in the real world and are equally important in career preparations, college applications, and networking.
YIELD is a specialized educational program designed to create that sandbox and the skillset for high school students to develop themselves. The program typically covers diverse topics such as ideation, market research, product development, marketing and sales, finance, and legal considerations. The tools allow the candidates to build a team, choose the ideal legal structure, generate demand, and finance growth. Leveraging our industry experience, we deliver proven techniques for scaling your business and helping you stand out.
The program’s objective is to help students develop an entrepreneurial mindset and equip them with the tools they need to turn their ideas into successful businesses. The program provides students an opportunity to work on real-world projects, engage with entrepreneurs and business leaders, and receive mentorship and guidance from experienced professionals. In the process, you get exposure to invaluable real-life case studies and experience that no textbook can teach and helps you stand out not only in your college applications but also in your life.
The program is delivered through a combination of classroom sessions, workshops, guest lectures, and experiential learning opportunities. Our industry relationships provide you with the platform to interact with hedge funds, private equity funds, venture capitalists, lawyers, and accountants.
While passion can be a driving force behind venture creation, a successful venture creator needs a combination of skills that increases the likelihood of success. The Canadian School of Business Management YIELD Program recognizes this and brings together faculty with diverse backgrounds in social psychology, organizational behavior, information technology, finance, and marketing to provide a cross-disciplinary approach to learning. By combining the expertise of faculty and industry experts from different fields, the program aims to equip entrepreneurs with a well-rounded set of skills and knowledge that are essential for success in today’s business environment.
