Moguls in the Making was born from the need to act, to put our beliefs into practice by creating a program that would tackle the issue of economic mobility head-on. That’s why we, along with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund and the Sean Anderson Foundation, launched Moguls in the Making. Now in its third year, this entrepreneurial competition continues to foster opportunities for young, up-and-coming entrepreneurs from our nation’s publicly supported historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).

 

Winning Moguls in the Making team from 2020 with Big Sean.

Fifty students are selected, ten teams are formed, and out of all the ideas pitched, one will be declared the winner. Over the course of the weekend students will be tested and given a glimpse into what being a mogul is all about – hard work.

 

It’s a strenuous 72 hours of rigorous learning and creating where all kinds of different skill sets will be used to turn visions into reality. Students will have mentors to guide them and speakers to inspire them as they work to put together a pitch that impresses the judges. It’s simple— the best presentation with the most brilliant business solution wins.

Congratulations to our 2021 winners!

The team from NC A&T knocked it out of the park this year! We're proud to recognize Claudia Duverglas, Darren Rippy, Joshua Weaver, Kameran Harris, and Lance Davis for their hard work and innovative ideas. We can't wait to see what their future holds.

 

Remember to come back in Spring 2022 to apply for the 4th annual Moguls in the Making competition.

fintropolis: a case study.

Less than one-third of adults ages 18-54 can answer basic questions related to personal finance, creating urgency for new approaches to early financial education. This critical issue became the focus of four interns hired through Ally’s 2019 Moguls in the Making, student pitch competition: Erin Martin from Alabama A&M, Earl Perry and Keishon Smith from Florida A&M, and DeMari Tyner from North Carolina A&T. After research and field study, the four created the concept and design for Fintropolis, which Ally then brought to market.

They also are introduced to different careers and how early financial decisions can impact their futures. Minecraft: Education Edition also comes with lesson plans to connect the money concepts in Fintropolis to the classroom curriculum.
