ABOUT THE FUQUAY-VARINA STARTUP CHALLENGE (FVSC) BY R.I.S.E.

The Fuquay-Varina Startup Challenge is a (4) week startup development program designed to support and nurture aspiring entrepreneurs at the middle and high school levels, and is a collaboration between Fuquay Coworking (Empowered Ideas) and the Fuquay-Varina Middle School (FVMS) and High School (FVHS). The initiative is a collaboration between local businesses, schools, nonprofits, and young leaders in the community.

 

ABOUT R.I.S.E.

R.I.S.E. (Resilient & Innovative Student Entrepreneurs) is a program developed by Empowered Ideas of Fuquay-Varina, NC, and is designed to support and nurture aspiring (and existing) entrepreneurs at the middle and high school levels.  Originally developed to assist Youth Prevention Clubs across the country addressing substance abuse/misuse prevention, suicide prevention, and anti-bullying initiatives – it has since grown to support youth leaders venturing into nonprofit and entrepreneurial projects. The program consists of seminars, unique youth-focused events, and strategic planning workshops.

 

2018 FVSC PROGRAM FUNDING

The program is supported by a grant from the office of Tamara Barringer (NC Senate, District 17) through the Fuquay-Varina Chamber of Commerce.

 


NOTE: Homeschool students are welcome to participate.  This program is open to any child interested in participating, whether they have a great idea for a business, or just want to help a fellow peer with their idea. Anyone with a postive attitude is welcome to attend.
