How The Program Works
SBU is devoted to molding our young ladies with confidence in public speaking, learning basic business skills as well as owning their various gifts and talents. SBU’s top priority is to teach our ladies, what it takes to create a successful business that will not only provide them with many future opportunities but also promote sustainability and unity within their community.
The program is set-up in 3 Phases:
During this first phase of the program, the participants will engage in a curriculum about entrepreneurship. Sessions explore finance, marketing, networking and more.
As we enter the next phase of the program, the participants will be applying the practices taught in Phase 1 of the program by creating their marketing plan for social media or building out their budget to start their business idea.
During the last phase of the program, the participants will be executing their business skills and showcasing products. This phase will result in a community business or Stiletto Challenge (pitch competition).
To have a larger impact on our local community and beyond, we currently offer SBU’s curriculum in 4 different formats to maximize the number of students who are able to participate. SBU offers programs: In School Partnerships, Community Based Partnerships, SBU Headquarters (HQ), and Online SBU Headquarters Club.
In School Chapters
Stiletto Boss University partners with local schools to offer our programs within a school setting during school hours or after school.
Students meet twice a month (minimum) with SBU Chapter Ambassadors who teach participants the basics of entrepreneurship, owning your craft and other business skill sets. Participants are eligible to pitch at SBU’s annual youth pitch challenge at the end of the session. School Chapters are at no cost to students since they are funded by grants. Current schools participating are: West Charlotte High School, Harding University High School, Mooresville High School, Cato Middle School.
