About Rising Starters

The Charles D. Close School is challenging high school students to reach for new heights, develop an idea for a business (profit or not for profit), then pitch to a panel of judges. Each high school will hold individual pitch competitions for its student entrepreneurs. Throughout competition preparation and execution, students will gain skills such as recognizing needs, developing opportunities and moving ideas forward - all crucial skills that students can apply to any field they pursue.

The winning teams/individuals from each school have the opportunity to compete for a $2,500 cash prize in a final competition hosted by the Charles D. Close School of Entrepreneurship at Drexel University.
