The hallmarks of a successful business go beyond simply profit and revenue growth, and for Beta Bowl, the barometer of success also revolves around inspiring students to turn their passions into businesses that improve the lives of others or impact the world. Simply put, Beta Bowl aims to imbue students with the understanding that in order to achieve fulfillment in business, one must become a catalyst for change.
Founded by Rachel Greenberg, Beta Bowl serves as a hotbed for budding entrepreneurs around the world. The company is primarily a virtual entrepreneurial extracurricular enrichment program that takes motivated teens through the intricacies of business and entrepreneurship in the comforts of their own homes. It also prepares them with the skills, tools, and confidence for success in both their future academic and professional lives, while also providing an impressive differentiator on resumes and in future applications and interviews.
Beta Bowl uses the advancements in the digital age, in terms of the accessibility and affordability that new technology creates for aspiring entrepreneurs to its benefit, by virtually providing students with every resource and tool they need to successfully launch a business. Unlike other educational programs that may have made a gradual transition from physical to digital, Beta Bowl has always provided digital, accessible programs to cater to a variety of young hopefuls across the globe. The programs include highly-interactive live and pre-recorded classes, associated business-building tasks and resources, group or individual mentoring sessions, and round-the-clock text and email support designed to accommodate the students’ inquiries. Moreover, Beta Bowl also runs a variety of carefully-curated programs year-round, with varying schedules to accommodate both the academic year and students’ individual availability, as well as to enable determined students to progress at their own pace.
And because of the company’s digital-first, accessible, and flexible program structure, catering to a wide variety of students with varying degrees of knowledge and interests, Beta Bowl has continued to gain traction all over the country during this strange and disruptive time. With more than 350 graduates just this past summer, Beta Bowl proves that it’s always the right time for entrepreneurship, regardless of a student’s location, experience, age, or skill set.
Taking pride in the growth and success of its remarkable students, Beta Bowl shares how its diverse pool of students exceed their own expectations and impact the world. Some students have gone to top colleges and universities, gained substantial scholarships, and started engaging in multiple business ventures. In fact, one former student, Raina Jain, used her entrepreneurial skills developed throughout Beta Bowl for more noble pursuits, such as providing solutions for the mite infestation problem in beehives. Grounded on a mission to eradicate the mite infestation issue, Raina Jain has developed a product and created a company designed to address the problem – Hiveguard. Now, Raina’s success has captured the attention of Forbes, Greenwich News, among others.
Raina Jain’s story of triumph in her scientific pursuits underscores the fact that Beta Bowl teens may pursue everything from monetizing their hobbies to solving environmental problems, to altruistic goals, and improving the world. To Beta Bowl and its founder, Rachel Greenberg, they believe that businesses should also serve as viable responses to society’s most pressing needs. Thus, the students enrolled in Beta Bowl’s programs are comprised of both potentially business-savvy individuals, as well as young people who are grounded on an impactful, service-oriented, and world-changing mission.
Beta Bowl hopes to open doors to many more equally passionate students and teenagers and guide them towards reaching the summits of success in the coming years. The company also plans to create more programs that offer career and business opportunities to former students, as well as providing entrepreneurial education to even younger groups with additional future products. With everything that Beta Bowl has achieved throughout the years, the company is well underway.
