Venture – Entrepreneurial Expedition

Thanks to the support from the Dallas Mavericks and the Seth Curry Foundation, the Venture—Entrepreneurial Expedition presented by Chime is implemented into local middle schools and high schools throughout North Texas.

Venture – Entrepreneurial Expedition is designed to teach students to think entrepreneurially about business and life.
