BEAUMONT SCHOOL ENTREPRENEUR TEACHER BECOMES BIZINNOVATOR CERTIFIED

CLEVELAND HEIGHTS Virg Bossu, entrepreneurship teacher at Beaumont School, has successfully completed the BizInnovtor professional development program through the Jacobson Institute for Youth Entrepreneurship and may now offer to high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to pursue University of Iowa credit.

“During our Veale Youth Entrepreneur Forum meeting, I was introduced to the Jacobson Institute of Youth Entrepreneurship’s Bizinnovator curriculum, explains Bossu. “I was attracted to its emphasis on the “entrepreneurial mindset” that encourages creativity, innovation, critical thinking and problem-solving.”

BizInnovator is an online entrepreneurship curriculum for high school teachers and students. It enables educators to teach the entrepreneurial mindset—encouraging creativity, innovation, critical thinking and problem solving—through their high school business courses. These skills prepare studnts for success in their chosen careers.

Students of a certified BizInnovator teacher have the opportunity to earn University of Iowa college credit if they pass a rigorous comprehensive exam taken at the conclusion of the high school course.

“It fits so perfectly into our International Baccaluareate learner profile that we are encouraging our students to develop and practice, continued Bossu. “I am very glad to be able to offer the students the possibility of earning three college credits from the University of Iowa. It is a great opportunity for them and a financial saving for their parents.”

The Jacobson Institute for Youth Entrepreneurship is a part of the John Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Center at the University of Iowa. BizInnovator is a key element in the Jacobson Institute’s initiative to promote entrepreneurship to K-12 studetns and teachers on a local, state and national level.

The Forum currently reaches 3,000 annually at 22 different private and public high schools that are invited for participatin and uses its resources to equip students with an entrepreneurial mindset and essential skills.

Funded by the Veale Foundation, the Forum’s purpsose is to enable high school students to recognize their full potential by experiencing all facets of entrepreneurship. The Forum delivers on that purpose trough high-value learning experiences and connections to the real world of entrepreneurship.
