The Futureboss Program, chaired by Ron Morrison, Mayor of National City, and organized by the Foundation’s youth entrepreneurship community council, is a collaborative effort between Alliant International University, Wells Fargo Bank, the Walmart Foundation, Neighborhood National Bank the California Foundation Fund, and twenty local organizations.

“We understand entrepreneurial education in preparing individuals for success,” said Mayor Morrison. He added, “This program identifies entrepreneurial minded students through an integrate network of business and non-profit collaborative. This year marks a new level of engagement for the Program as more than 400 high school seniors applied to compete.”

The Futureboss Program will be taught by senior faculty of the School of Management. Students will participate in the program’s academic components, develop a viable business idea and turn it into a business plan, which will be presented to a panel of judges. Three winners will be awarded a scholarship and an iPad. The winning student will receive this year’s Ernst & Young Youth Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
