Verizon to Recognize Area Teens’ Entrepreneurial Talents

Aspiring young entrepreneurs from two area high schools will compete to test their business acumen at the Verizon “Realize Ambition: The Shot Caller Showdown.” The event, hosted by Big Tigger of BET and the Street Corner Foundation, will be held at Medgar Evers College on Thursday, March 9. “The Apprentice” winner, Randal = Pinkett, Ph.D., will provide encouragement and business advice for the budding entrepreneurs.

Student business teams from Banneker High School and Bedford Academy will present business plans crafted from a specially designed curriculum (created by The Enterprise Center of Philadelphia) for an audience of fellow students, parents and community leaders. A panel of judges from the New York business community will select two winning teams to receive the title of “Ultimate Shot Caller.” Each member of the winning teams will receive new laptops and have their business presentations placed on the site.

During the event, Verizon will also present each participating school with two Verizon Realize Multimedia Centers, which include computers, educational software, cameras and printers.
