About the Empact Showcase and Empact 100
Formally known as Extreme Entrepreneurship Education, Empact aims to facilitate a culture of entrepreneurship in communities around the world by exposing young people to entrepreneurship and celebrating the vital role young entrepreneurs play in our economy. The showcase was initially founded by the Empact organization in partnership with the Kauffman Foundation. The Empact100 showcase is corresponding to President Obama’s establishment of National Entrepreneurs’ Day and Global Entrepreneurship Week.

Prior to the Empact100 showcase, entrepreneurs meeting the minimum criteria from across the country were invited by Empact to apply for the Showcase. The list was judged primarily by revenue, with additional factors such as number of employees, social impact, growth over the past year, and innovativeness coming into play. In 2012, the companies on the Empact Showcase contributed more than 8,000 jobs to the economy, and controlled $1 billion in revenue.
