Individuals, local businesses and corporations can donate to Tomorrow’s CEOs Today, and not only help fund the education of future business leaders, but also help create jobs through capital infusion in promising companies
Houston, Texas (PRWEB) December 09, 2014
Interlinked, an exclusive global community connecting the best emerging growth companies, accredited investors and resource partners, announced today that its new scholarship program for futures business leaders, Tomorrow’s CEOs Today, named the five emerging growth companies that will be eligible to receive investment capital from the scholarship fund. The program, which was successfully inaugurated last month at the FSXinterlinked investment conference, provides scholarship recipients with the unique opportunity to experience real-world deal making, watch companies pitch their investment opportunity, and collectively decide which companies the scholarship fund should invest in.
The 12 recipients of Tomorrow’s CEOs Today scholarships were selected from a competitive group of high school students who have excelled academically and have overcome personal challenges to succeed. At the FSXinterlinked conference, the students were given $1 million in mock money and had the opportunity to watch companies present their investment opportunity, participate in the funding roundtables and choose how much to invest in each company. Likewise, investors at the conference also did the same.
Here are the results for the students and investors simulating investing:
1st Pressure BioSciences, Inc. (PBIO) 3M
2nd Perpetual Industries Inc. (PRPI) 2.410M
3rd CannaPharmaRx (GDHC) 1.375M
