Any interested K-12 school or class with a teacher and business partner.
As an initiative of BMO Financial Group, this is primarily an opportunity for branches/units of BMO Financial Group to work with the communities they serve. However, as each venture is a unique idea in a unique community, involving other business partners with different resources and expertise may also be appropriate.
Partners set the terms of their own partnership. Some business partners spend an hour a week working with the students and teachers on many aspects of their project. Others spend less time and focus on a more specific role, perhaps helping with planned meetings, leading a workshop or two, or setting up other resources from local customers. Some share the role with a group of colleagues from their branch/unit.
Many ventures are self-financing and involve no financial support from the business partner. Some partners plan on $100-$500 for incidental costs such as a class visit to the business site, contributing some seed money, buying an ad, donating used equipment or passbooks, or purchasing the product of the venture.
From idea to evaluation, most ventures take place over one term or school year. The partners set the terms of the project and their personal time commitment.
