Tipalti Partners with Entrepreneurship Program BUILD to Empower Youth
A student’s opportunity can be limited by their zip code, race, and class. BUILD, a non-profit organization, is bridging the gap between low-income areas and entrepreneurial opportunities.
“Entrepreneurship is the hook. College and career success is the goal.” BUILD’s message rings loud and true—it invites underprivileged students to join BUILD Gen E, a national movement to propel the diverse new generation of agents of change and business leaders forward. BUILD’s Gen E encourages students of all backgrounds to be “the CEO of their own lives.”
By utilizing entrepreneurship to inspire youth from under-resourced communities, BUILD believes in a world where all students—regardless of race, socioeconomic status, or neighborhood—have the potential to develop skills for personal and professional success.
BUILD’s network of mentors guide, challenge, and connect students through entrepreneurial endeavors. These mentors establish relationships with their students, building trust and stability as they navigate them through the early stages of their professional development.
BUILD knows that students who create relationships with reliable, consistent mentors are empowered to set higher goals, have a consistent class attendance record, and develop interpersonal and emotional skills, like problem-solving and common sense. With this belief in mind, BUILD’s mentors help students nurture their confidence in their career paths—empowering them to graduate from high school and college.
BUILD partners with Tipalti to handle their accounts payable workload, so it was a no-brainer for us to partner with them to support youth education. As an advocate of learning, Tipalti is thrilled to create educational opportunities for children of all backgrounds.
At Tipalti, our philanthropic committee is dedicated to giving back to our community, and we are pleased to announce our partnership with BUILD. Tipalti recognizes the importance of youth education, which is why we’re thrilled to support the BUILD mission.
The first step in our partnership will be waiving the attendee registration fee for our upcoming Illuminate conference—we will instead be donating the funds directly to BUILD.
Tipalti is proud to support BUILD and its mission to use the power and possibility of entrepreneurship to help young people succeed in school and their careers. We look forward to a long and meaningful partnership.
