Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Two of the main problems we see student entrepreneurs run into is them not having enough education to scale their startup company, and not having the money to do so. We strive to alleviate these problems by providing students with grant funding, and mentorship programs. Far too often in the startup industry we see a lack of experience, we believe that aspiring entrepreneurs, especially those new to the field, should receive the guidance necessary for the seamless implementation of their ideas. At Bamboo Ladder we know that having proper entrepreneurial skills is the most essential part of creating a good business. Students who have exceptional entrepreneurial skills are better leaders, speakers, and team members, and make for better business leaders.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Bamboo Ladder is a non-profit organization that guides young entrepreneurs and future innovators by empowering them with the essential experience, mentorship, and resources to grow their startups exponentially. We seek to address the issues regarding a lack of expedient access to fundamental resources for the vast majority of passionate entrepreneurs across the country.At Bamboo Ladder we assert that the team behind the project matters most. We are looking for hungry student entrepreneurs between the ages of 16 and 24 who are currently building their own company to take their startup to the next level.

a. To provide student entrepreneurs between the ages of 16 and 24 with the education they
need to scale their startup company. Oftentimes, student entrepreneurs with great teams and great ideas end up failing because they do not have the proper education and information to properly scale their company. We seek to rid of these issues by providing student entrepreneurs with mentors who can guide them, and educate them.
b. To provide student entrepreneurs with grant funding in order for them to have the money they need to scale there companies. Bamboo Ladder will make sure that grant funding is spent properly, to ensure that money is spent on company necessities. By providing these companies with grant funding we help break down the financial barrier that oftentimes comes in the way of young entrepreneurs.
c. Lastly, we strive to encourage entrepreneurship to young individuals in general. Bamboo Ladder believes that no matter who you are, or what your passion is, you can be an entrepreneur. We believe that it is possible to turn your deepest passion into a
sustainable and rewarding career.

Bamboo Ladder provides participants with excellent resources and expertise. With a team of seasoned entrepreneurs, we are confident in our abilities to ensure that our startups receive the necessary advisory and implementation prowess that is conducive to success in the entrepreneurial field.

Thus far, the Bamboo Ladder team has done well to expand its reach amid potential cohorts, as well as validated its legitimacy with a partnership with an organization in a similar space to that of Bamboo Ladder. Having instantiated the organization as a formal 501(c)3 organization, and assembling a talented team of directors, we have mounted a successful donation and social media campaign via donor box and various social media platforms. Going forward, we seek to make a formal partnership with fledgling cohorts involving young entrepreneurs, while expanding our current efforts in curriculum formation and social media marketing.
