Jodie Woodruff - The MET School for more information." data-title="">
Allen Distinguished Educator Jodie Woodruff runs a unique entrepreneurship program to teach high school students at The MET School in Providence, RI to run their own community businesses. They must identify a market opportunity, develop and pitch a business plan to potential investors, secure seed funding, manage a budget, market their product and even rent office space. They run their businesses out of a purpose-built collaboration space on the school’s campus. Example businesses include a Kickstarter campaign consultancy and a graphic design and printing service for local Hispanic-owned small businesses.
