Mark Greenberg is one of the chief architects of the remarkable entrepreneurship program at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy in Philadelphia, PA. The Sands Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership was established through an innovative vision that recognizes
the need for schools to produce job creators--not just job-appliers. Very few schools have the combination of curriculum, instruction, and culture that makes this such a successful model for others to emulate.
A consummate entrepreneur at heart, Mark has a passion for helping more students benefit from this same spirit of grit, problem solving, and creativity. He has served on the board for nationally recognized education think tanks and recently launched the World Series of Entrepreneurship.
Haven't heard of it? Well it's a competition for high school students that begins in Mid-May with events in Washington DC, Philadelphia, and Online. The finals this year are on June 1, where the winners will receive college scholarship awards.
All of the details can be found at www.WorldSeriesofEntrepreneurship.com, including the criteria for entry. A board of judges will score each submission for consideration for the main competition.
Below is a brief interview with Mark, where he shares the background story about this unique program to inspire the next generation of free enteprise leaders.
This is a great opportunity to take your high school leadership or entrepreneurship program to the next level, challenging your students to be even more innovative.
