About the Event

Nicole Bowman of Bowman Performance Consulting and other business professionals will share with the students what it takes to be an entrepreneur, what characteristics lend themselves well to success in the field of business, and how to write and use a business plan in order to create change in our world. After panelists share their experiences and we explain to the students how to write a ‘simple’ form of a business plan, we will break our students up into groups and allow them time to use the PEOPLE template to create their own business plan. They will practice a pitch and present to our panelists. The panelists will then select a winning team from the middle and high school programs, which will win a prize.

The event aims to convey to students the power of entrepreneurship as an agent for change. Regardless of what future careers our students decide to pursue, the spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation can empower them to become better problem-solvers and action-takers. This is a message that we hope speaks to all of our students.

About PEOPLE

Our mission is to help students successfully make each transition from middle school to high school and from high school to college. Approximately 1,300 students currently participate in the PEOPLE Program ranging from second grade through undergraduate college level. We began in 1999 with 66 eager ninth-graders from Milwaukee public high schools who are now completing college degrees and entering the workforce. The PEOPLE Program has admitted 359 students
to the UW–Madison under our scholarship program

The success of the program may be attributed to our dedicated K-12 education partners, to our supportive parents, to a solid foundation provided by the university and private donors and, most importantly, to the persistent need for such programming in the state of Wisconsin. Together, we are making college accessible to more students of color and/or those from low-income families.
