WELCOME TO THE
ASCEND NOW BULLPEN
A "bullpen" is where baseball pitchers practice their pitch before they go out into the real game. The Ascend Now Bullpen is where kids practice entrepreneurship before executing their business.
Entrepreneurship promotes the development of personal qualities:
This program allows students to harness what they learn in the classroom and apply it in real-world settings. Their understanding of photosynthesis may lead to a new biofuel. Mathematical skills are practiced on supply costs. Languages are gateways to markets. Humanities lay the foundations of how society operates.
Students will work on:
Communication through activities such as presenting development plans to an audience, and investigating case studies of successful entrepreneurs.
Critical thinking while evaluating start-up failures and successes, and presenting to a formal audience.
Time management through activities such as planning deadlines and campaigns, finding a product-market fit and bringing that product to market.
Collaboration with various partners within small business projects alongside other students globally.
