Do you know what time it is? It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for… it's time to share the winning pitches from #GLAMVirtual with Arm! The culmination of this leadership and STEAM program is to create, record, and submit a business pitch. Expert insights shared by Keynote Speakers from Arm and stellar mentoring sessions with Chelsey Baker, Founder and CEO of National Mentoring Day, prepare girls aged 8 to 12 for this culminating Final Mission task.
Over a dozen incredible young entrepreneurs rose to the challenge and submitted their own unique business pitches! All of the business ideas include themes of helping others and one of the United Nations 17 SDGs, also known as the Global Goals. They address topics such as clean drinking water, education, homelessness, recycling, and wellbeing. We are so proud of all the girls who completed this task. There’s no doubt they will be leading the future in STEAM and business. Let’s watch the winning pitches now!
