Build Your Business

We developed Build Your Business (BYB) in partnership with Microsoft to provide young people a highly engaging digital tool for learning practical skills to start their own businesses.

Today, more than 300 organizations in 20 countries have used the 14-module curriculum (available in English, French, and Arabic) to help young people start, lead, and grow their small and micro enterprises. Thanks to its adaptability, BYB can fit the needs of any youth-serving organization, educational institution, or other partner. Users can combine digital components with classroom teaching as a blended learning product, or they can benefit from BYB as a self-contained online learning course. To complement the curriculum, IYF staff are available to provide training support, coaching, and workshops to ensure quality execution and strong outcomes for young entrepreneurs.
