Entrepreneurship+Social Innovation

The Achievement Pitch (TAP) is a student-based, social enterprise pitch competition designed to address social and environmental challenges in communities of color while encouraging and advancing entrepreneurship among high school students.

TAP seeks to demonstrate that profits and purpose are not mutually exclusive and can go hand-in-hand.   TAP also allows participants to practice, hone, and refine their pitch/presentation skills which are valuable for future business purposes.
