Somya Munjal, Managing Director and founder of Youthful Savings is currently competing for a $5,000 grant through ELEVATE fueled by Fairfield women’s entrepreneurship program. Munjal is one of 19 finalists in the country.
Munjal is a Certified Public Accountant as well as a Certified Financial Education Instructor through National Financial Educators Council. Her social enterprise creates and delivers innovative youth financial education and entrepreneurship programs throughout the United States. Besides her commitment to teach financial literacy, 10 cents of every dollar earned is reinvested in the community through youth college scholarships.
“I am honored to be a finalist for the ELEVATE fueled by Fairfield program. The grant would be instrumental in helping us reach more youth and teach the positive life skills and financial education that can change the world. Many of our clients are not for profits and do not have the budget to hire us. This grant would allow us to subsidize our costs and create the programs that have been proven to empower youth towards a powerful and positive tomorrow,” says Munjal.
The competition culminated on October 31, 2013. Each finalist was given free office space at participating Fairfield Inn and Suites locations. This program has become a game changer for women owned businesses across the country.
