We'll organize a one-day student business competition with your employees

SuitUp will organize a one-day middle/high school business competition for your employees. Students will be divided into teams and coached by your employees to solve real problems for well-known brands, such as designing a new shoe for Nike, or creating a new flavor for VitaminWater. Throughout the day, students will work on their solutions, with the help of your team, and present those solutions to a panel of judges for a cash prize.

we work with some of the best brands in the world...

Mission


Be part of an innovative movement to increase career awareness in low-income areas

Mission


Be part of an innovative movement to increase career awareness in low-income areas

SuitUp increases career awareness and marketable skills for students that need it the most. We do this by aligning the incentives of companies and schools - organizing simple, exciting and impactful volunteer events for corporations that equip students for life beyond the classroom.

The Problem

Children in low-income communities are not exposed to private sector jobs and have limited career awareness because of it.  Without proper career exposure in America’s most diverse communities, how can we tap into the full potential of our nation’s workforce?

Our Mission

SuitUp provides creative and interactive educational competitions that connects corporations with schools in low-income communities to expand career awareness opportunities for students.

How It Works

SuitUp brings companies into the classroom to organize a one-day business competition. Students are divided into teams and work with our coaches to solve a real problem for a real company, like creating a new shoe for Nike. Students present their ideas to a panel of judges and the winning team is awarded a cash prize.
