Enactus ABAC CVC Capital Partners Youth Entrepreneurship Award

The Enactus ABAC business club had a very productive Spring 2017 term. Students completed a youth entrepreneur project, ”Build A Vibrant Generation and Strengthen the Economy”, in collaboration with Tift County High School Marketing classes and judges from the Tift County professional community. This experiential project initiated by Enactus ABAC students and faculty advisor, Franzelle Pertilla, introduced the high school students to the essentials of marketing, planning, and selling a product. The Enactus ABAC team won a financial prize and trophy for 2nd Place in the Enactus United States CVC Capital Partners Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge. The CVC Capital Partners Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge provides an opportunity for Enactus United States teams to showcase how they are empowering young people in the U.S. with the skills, knowledge and resources they need to start a successful business or improve an existing business. They look for projects that showcase entrepreneurship as a sustainable, scalable solution for youth empowerment while driving economic growth and job creation.
