Imagine what students could achieve if given the opportunity to launch and manage a business that functions like a real company in both structure and practice! Join us to learn how operating within a student-led economy can provide an authentic, connected experience in which students learn business by doing business while test driving careers. Through live interactions with student-run companies, you will learn how VE uses our online banking system to bring authentic learning to life. Participants will be given a VE “Credit Card” to buy from student-run companies across the US. Come gain an understanding of the functionality and infrastructure of VE’s online banking system and economy. This unique feature, combined with industry certification, entrepreneurial mindset, and personal finance allows students to experience the business world in a safe environment. You will leave with a road map for implementing this experience within your pathway.
