Springdale students get hands-on entrepreneurial experience with EforAll NWA partnership

Entrepreneurship for All Northwest Arkansas (EforAll NWA) and Springdale Public Schools are partnering on a pilot program to introduce entrepreneurship and business representation to Springdale students.

According to an announcement on Thursday (Feb. 15), the collaboration aims to equip students with essential entrepreneurial skills while promoting diversity and inclusion through engaging role models.

“We believe that this partnership will significantly impact the community and provide valuable insights into the importance of early exposure to diverse role models in shaping children’s career aspirations,” said Rodrigo Salas, EforAll NWA executive director.

The program, launched at the beginning of the 2023-24 school year, includes an entrepreneurial speaker series featuring regional entrepreneurs and mentors and a high school pitch competition to instill entrepreneurial skills in junior and senior students.
