Breanden Beneschott Ambitious Entrepreneurs Scholarship

The world needs more great entrepreneurs.

From small business owners to people building venture-scale businesses, great entrepreneurs infuse the world with innovation, ingenuity, and optimism. While not every new venture succeeds, the ones that do can improve the quality of millions — or even billions — of people’s lives.

As a cofounder of Mechanism, a venture firm that funds and launches ambitious companies, I am fortunate to have the opportunity to work with incredible entrepreneurs every day.

The startups we cofound are mission-driven – focused on improving something that matters – and ultimately grow to a billion-dollar market capitalization over 5-10 years.

As part of our belief in empowering future entrepreneurs and business leaders, the Breanden Beneschott Ambitious Entrepreneurs Scholarship will be awarded to an individual who would like to leverage his or her unique talents to improve the world through entrepreneurship.

The scholarship is open to everyone. As part of applying, you’ll have the opportunity to tell us about what large problems you see in the world that Mechanism should consider tackling.

Selection Criteria:
Essay, Perseverance, Determination, Grit, Ambition

Essay Topic:
Describe a problem you see in the world that Mechanism should explore. Why is this problem worth solving?
