SuitUp increases college and career awareness and preparedness for students in underserved communities through innovative business competitions. Through SuitUp, students experience solving a realistic corporate challenge, such as designing a new product for Nike or creating a new phone case for Apple. They have the opportunity to interact with corporate volunteers who coach them on the marketing, financing, and strategy before helping them pitch to live judges. By the end of the day, students can see the corporate world as part of “their world” and know that job titles, such as CEO, VP of Marketing, Business Development Manager, etc. are now in their grasp.
SuitUp is participating in the 2020 NYC Marathon to raise funds to serve 4,000+ students in 2020. For every $17 dollars raised, SuitUp can serve 1 additional child, helping them become the next CEO!
