Welcome to the movement. Welcome to moguls in the making.

Welcome to the movement.
Welcome to moguls in the making.

We're making moguls.

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. Now in its fourth year, this entrepreneurial competition continues to foster opportunities for young, up-and-coming leaders from our nation’s publicly supported Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).

We are excited to be increasing the amount of schools and students selected this year. Now more then ever is the time to apply to be a part of this remarkable experience. Once students arrive, teams wil be 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.


Hear from our students.

 “A good Mogul is someone that has a vision outside of themselves.”

Morgan Phillips
Howard University/2nd Place Winner

 "The fact that Ally came by at the end [of the competition] to say, ‘you all were so talented this year that we are going to increase the scholarship prices for everyone’, is so insanely beautiful."

Lance Davis
NC A&T University/1st place Winner

"The best birthday gift. It doesn't feel real!  I knew we had something special with the team and I definitely gained 4 new very good friends. Outside of winning $20,000, what I learned about being a Mogul - it takes humility. "

Are you a Mogul in the Making?

Are you a student that has what it takes to be the next Mogul? Here’s your chance to prove it. You and your squad will brainstorm a business idea and pitch it to a panel of judges.

 

Only the top 15 schools out of the 110 HBCUs will get the chance to participate in an intense weekend of learning, mentoring, and of course pitching. You and your team will be doing what entrepreneurs do, seeing a consumer need, and filling it.
