Partnership Inspires Entrepreneurship and Aims
to Make Financial Competence Fun, Engaging
and Accessible for Everyone
Los Angeles – April 30, 2020 – The Singleton Foundation for Financial Literacy & Entrepreneurship announces today a partnership with Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization (CEO) to promote the entrepreneurial spirit on college campuses around the world. The strategic partnership helps advance the missions of both organizations as they approach entrepreneurship and financial literacy in unique ways.
The Singleton Foundation uses the power of entertainment in its Million Stories Media and Venture Valley Game projects to make financial competence fun and engaging for everyone while promoting entrepreneurship and inspiring individual achievement.
Million Stories is a new, free digital lifestyle and entertainment channel that offers a wide variety of bite-sized original programming with a focus on career, money, and inspiring stories of entrepreneurs from all walks of life.
Venture Valley is a free exciting multiplayer game that allows users to start their own business and then to grow it into a virtual empire, with the opportunity to win real-world prizes. As users compete against each other for in-game rankings and online competitions, they benefit by gaining business and financial skills that will help them in their own lives.
The global network of Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization represents 250 universities and college chapters domestically as well as chapters located in the United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, Spain, Brazil, Australia, Canada, Mexico and India. These chapters represent 16,000 collegiate entrepreneurs each possessing an irrepressible spirit of the entrepreneurial mindset. The mission of CEO is to inform, support and inspire college students to be more entrepreneurial via new venture creation.
The Singleton Foundation is sponsoring the CEO’s newly designed Resource Portal, ensuring that students and campuses will have the resources they need. In addition, the foundation offers financial learning resources that are available to help them manage their businesses and financial futures with confidence. The portal is available at www.c-e-o.org.
Through the partnership, CEO members will have the opportunity to act as Singleton Ambassadors and will amplify the original content created by the foundation. By engaging students in the Million Stories video content, ambassadors will inspire others to develop entrepreneurial ambitions and become comfortable discussing financial responsibilities. CEO students will also help test the Venture Valley game and play in online multiplayer competitions throughout the summer. It will launch on mobile devices and computers later in 2020. An Esports tournament is planned to take place at the CEO Global Conference. Once released, the game will become part of the ongoing activities provided to CEO chapters.
“Encouraging entrepreneurship is a crucial part of the Singleton Foundation’s mission,” said Singleton’s CEO Shelley Miles. “We’re proud to be working with The Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization. We fully embrace their mission and look forward to helping their students acquire the skills necessary to reach their goals and become the CEO’s of their lives.”
