How It Works
Risepreneur is a course, a community and a coaching program that teaches high schoolers business skills and life skills. All delivered online and paid for with a low monthly membership fee.
Here’s how it works.
Proven Curriculum Teaches Your Teen Business and Life Skills
Our core product is our proprietary Risepreneur curriculum, a youth entrepreneurship program that teaches the 10 vital stages to entrepreneurship. Each stage is divided into multiple modules. Our hand-picked instructors, all of them successful entrepreneurs in their own right, teach your teen how to think and act like an entrepreneur.
The course is taught through stimulating, on-demand video lessons, retained through homework assignments, and enforced by on-on-one coaching by our mentors.
Your teen learns about:
- Goal Setting
- Business Basics
- Operations and Productions
- Human Resources and Leadership
- Exiting a Business
Two bonus sessions teach vital lessons about balancing business ownership with Relationships and Parenting.
Mentors Guide and Encourage
Most successful entrepreneurs need a mentor. So does your teen. We assign a mentor to your teen, someone who is always on hand to guide and encourage and act as a sounding board. Mentors are a key success factor for Risepreneur students. Mentors work one-on-one with your student via email and video, giving them feedback on homework assignments.
Live Coaching Builds Confidence
Your monthly membership in Risepreneur includes weekly group coaching calls between our mentors and your teen. As your student progresses through the curriculum, our mentors answer questions, give direction and lend support. These coaching calls support your teen and build their confidence.
Exclusive Forum Helps Your Teen Meet Like-Minded Entrepreneurs
Our Forum is for students only. It’s the virtual “student center” where students meet and get to know their fellow students, ask questions and get answers. In our online Forum, teens talk about the Stages and Modules, and ask for suggestions on their individual homework. The Forum is also designed to have students act as both students (asking questions) and teachers (giving answers). This format reinforces the value of self-sufficiency, a core curriculum value. By helping others, teens help themselves.
Guest Speakers Educate and Inspire
Your teen learns business and life lessons from today’s business leaders. During the course and afterwards, your teen has exclusive access to online seminars, workshops and inspirational talks delivered by entrepreneurs, many of whom started a business while in their teens.
Self-Paced Curriculum Helps Your Teen Learn Their Way
One of the greatest advantages of Risepreneur over conventional business schools and summer camps for teen entrepreneurs is that the curriculum is delivered online. Students work their way through each module and each stage at their own pace. They learn when they want, wherever they are, through on-demand video lessons.
Dashboard Helps You Stay on Top of Your Student’s Progress
You and your teen monitor their progress and status throughout the course with a convenient online dashboard. The dashboard displays your student’s status, or progress, when they log in. You clearly see their next steps and the success goals they have established for themselves. There will never be any questions about their progress. This supports the values of accountability and ownership of tasks.
Parental Involvement is Encouraged
You support and bond with your teen by helping with homework assignments. Risepreneur is structured so that every student has the support they need, is encouraged to learn from their mistakes, and is inspired to achieve a “Pass” status in every Stage and Module. You as a parent play a vital role in your teen’s success.
