STUDENTS AT THE CENTER
One of our main core values is “Keeping Students at the Center”, and this is one of the many ways we do that. All profits from your purchases go to our students*. This is their platform to showcase their talents - they have worked hard on their teams, products, and services - and part of learning an entrepreneurial mindset and skills is benefiting from your own hard work.
*Purchases made on this site are not a donation. Payment is for actual products and/or services created and/or provided by BUILD students. All profits are remitted to the student businesses, and this is not considered a donation of any form. To make a donation to BUILD, please visit BUILD.org/Donate
Thank You, Team4Tech and Adobe!
We want to say a huge thank you to both Team4Tech and Adobe for all their help and support in getting this online selling platform up and running. We partnered with Team4Tech, who connected us with ten volunteers from Adobe. Those volunteers generously donated their time and talent, helping us research platform options, build out the website infrastructure, create student tutorials for both product and business profile creation, and design marketing curriculum modules. We could not have done this without them, and we are beyond grateful!
