Through competitions, workshops, and courses, BCIL provides K-12 support for students exploring their entrepreneurial ideas.

The on-campus incubator also serves as a resource center connecting students to experts in their entrepreneurial or civic-minded areas of interest. Our students share two of the highlights from last year:


“The social entrepreneurship Impactathon at UCLA was a very unique experience that both of us were lucky to be a part of. It not only gave us an insight into creating a business, but also a deeper understanding for the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. We joined a team that had a prototype for a more efficient whole house fan that was one-tenth the cost of a regular cooling system. This allowed for a wider sector of our population to reduce their carbon footprint and help save our planet from climate change. It was exciting that our team won $1,000 for best addressing one of the sustainable development goals.”
—Emma M. ’20 and Zach H. ’20

Middle School Entrepreneurship Pitch Challenge

“The Pitch Challenge was a great opportunity to work innovatively with my classmates to create a solution to real world problems addressed by the UN Sustainable Development Goals. My group worked really well together and had a great time brainstorming solutions to the problems that we believed were the most critical in the world today. We turned our diverse ideas into a product pitch that could capture carbon emissions and turn them into natural energy sources that power vehicles and homes, enhancing air quality around the world.” —Riya A. ’23
