Woman-Owned Firm to Host Culinary Artisans Celebrating Young Entrepreneurs from Chicago South Shore
VisionReady Founder and CEO Petula Sankarsingh is thrilled to be sponsoring young and emerging entrepreneurs from Lost Boyz to participate in VisionReady's Young Emerging Successors (YES) Program. At the event, participating youth will have the opportunity to present their business vision to the guests mimicking ABC's popular business pitch show, Shark Tank. The guest list includes some of the movers and shakers and Chicago's business scene.
Lost Boyz provides sports-based youth development to help boys and girls in Chicago's under-resourced neighborhoods develop confidence, resilience, and life skills. According to Lost Boyz Executive Director LaVonte Stewart, these young founders are excited about delivering their pitch and are busy preparing and video recording their entire process.
"The impact that the YES Program will have on these young people is vital to their positive life journey by helping them develop the skills and the mindset to work collaboratively, solve real-world problems they care about, and navigate through uncertainty and upheaval," Stewart points out. "These are the skills and traits at the core of entrepreneurship."
"As a sponsor or attendee, your support will be instrumental for VisionReady to deliver the educational content for launching our youth entrepreneurs' businesses into the digital world of NFTs and the metaverse," says Sankarsingh. "Youth are our future leaders who can improve the socio-economic conditions of their communities in sustainable and equitable ways by building thriving businesses. VisionReady can help them shift their mindset, change learned behaviors, and achieve clarity of purpose through proper guidance and mentorship."
Sankarsingh founded VisionReady with the mission to advance the development and growth of small businesses owned by Women, People of Color, LGBTQ, and Veterans by tearing down barriers to entry with intelligent technology. As a pioneer in business digitalization, VisionReady harnesses data, analytics, and technology expertise to give organizations a clear path to gaining industry leadership and improving systems for scalability.
