Matching investors to businesses. • % of profits go to college fund. • This allows the students to have a way to be gainfully employed with money towards college if they choose. Should they choose not to go to college afterall, their “college funds” will be invested in the next round of student start-ups. • Turn of investment to be included but low percent. • Win/win scenario – for investors and students.
  9. 9. Develop a program like the 1930’s Civilian Conservation Corps • The 1930’s Civilian Conservation Corps was a program developed in the depression era of the United States. It provided paid work for millions of unemployed and often “unskilled” individuals on government projects of conservation and infrastructure (roads, etc) while teaching skills and bolstering feelings of self work during that very difficult time. • So…This program would provide food, lodging, small stipend and, money towards college – It would include learning skills, automatic savings toward college, and public benefit through road maintenance, etc.
